NY near gridlock thanks to "working families" aka Unions

Why do we even allow unions in this country? With thousands of federal and state employment laws, the original primary purpose of their creation was workplace safety, which has now morphed into a Communist organization. The unions now are essentially represented as "us" (the union) vs. "them" (the evil capitalist pigs). Their typical cause for striking is less work and more pay. Of course out leftist media, which fully supports the union principle communism, never points out that union negotiations "wins" for the union are going to cost the consumer higher prices for goods and services....and who does that impact the most?....The poor! The alleged core of supporters of the liberals. It's amazing how the poor accepts the leftist propaganda, yet are unable to see how they are getting screwed by the unions.

So the few million New Yorkers that are having a horrible time getting around all the congestion today can take solace in the fact that those "working class /working families" unions are putting you through this nightmare for a good reason:
The union called the strike after a late round of negotiations broke down Monday night. "This is a fight over dignity and respect on the job, a concept that is very alien to the MTA," union President Roger Toussaint said in announcing the strike. "Transit workers are tired of being underappreciated and disrespected."
Ain't that just great??? .....oh, and they also want a 24% pay increase over the next 3yrs. AND lifetime free healthcare. Can't you just feel the love?
