The Wisconsin State Journal can always be relied upon for an anti-union editorial. Here‘s one today. Wasn’t there one just yesterday? Why, yes, there was! And another 12 days before that. It’s a bit of a theme, isn’t it.
We here at The Daily Tissue, looking down from our splendid tower of isolation and objectivity, have no reason either to love or hate unions. But it’s perfectly obvious that
a) unions have been losing influence… since 1979… and
b) opponents of unions have been gaining corresponding influence
This alone makes it profoundly unlikely that unionism is the cause of our current problem(s)… whatever we perceive our problem(s) to be.
But unions have made a very bad habit of supporting Democrats, assisting those Democrats with money and volunteers. Republicans hate that. Restart here.
