Well, I will say this–he has his work cut out and he has a fight ahead that will be difficult to win. The entire federal government will be giving the union money to get rid of Christie.
I for one would like to see all the unions go away. They have pretty much destroyed companies like GM, Chrysler, and many others.
Abolishing unions would be a tremendous asset to this country. Getting rid of just the teacher’s unions would give control back to the elected officials and the school boards.
It will be interesting watching this battle.

If you ever wondered why there’s a rash of beautiful female teachers having sex with junior high school male students lately when, back in the day, we all had “coach” and “grandma” teaching in those grades… teachers unions. No one’ll tell the scorching hot babe who wants to teach hormone-addled young boys “no” because it’ll be union-backed lawsuit sh*tstorm if they do.

Ron , please explain why you want ALL unions to go away.As a former commercial diver working through the SO Cal Pile Driver’s union married to a former Retail Clerk’s union member, I don’t understand the contempt. When I started my own business, I resisted the union because we were a two man operation, both owners; my business got better AFTER signing an agreement.It opened many doors. Is the firefighters union bad also? The UAW took quite a bashing several years ago about being overpaid and underworked, but its the Toyotas that have “sticky gas pedals” that have killed a… Read more »

erinyes, My first run in with a Union was when some Teamsters successfully turned my father’s truck over while I was in it–age three, and then threatened his family with death if he didn’t join them. My father was a strong man and he fought them. Eventually, they gave up. My second run in with unions was when, again the Teamster’s Union, came to my place of business and proceeded to destroy the building and threatened my customers along with me and my family. However, I handled the situation. I’m sure some of them still remember the altercation. My last… Read more »

Ron, it seems your opinion is well founded.
Do you mind if I ask where you lived when the Teamsters gave your family so much grief?
The Longshoremen and Pile Drivers in Los Angeles Harbor were quite militant in the 40’s thru the 60’s, but back then work related deaths and disabilities were common.
As I stated in my comment, the union I belonged to was very good to both the workers and employers, but the work was highly specialized and dangerous; our union organization cut work place fatalaties dramatically.
I appreciate your response.

I cannot disagree with you that unions have done a great deal of good for the workers of America. I just believe they have outlived their usefulness. My first experience with the Teamsters was in Ohio. My second run in with them was in Oregon. There I owned a few businesses, one was a service station. I remained in Oregon for a number of years, finally completed my education after attending different Colleges and Universities. When I was older and ready to retire I moved to this part of the country hoping to live happily ever after, you know the… Read more »
