Niether party is what it used to be. It's amazing to me sometimes how far from their principles each party has gone. That being said, I don't think public employee unions were in 1956, what they are now.
What is consistent is the pandering to the base ... :scream:
That is all fine and good, but at the same time lets not pretend that unions have not changed as well.
They sure have, I know that from personal dealings, many of our "elected officials" in the Teamsters have THEMSELVES become the dreaded CEO's they used to do battle with, now they lie in bed with them.
RW and Hamar, how have unions changed?
unions used to be primarily a private sector entity. they are now primarily a public sector entity.
Not really, there are only slightly more public sector union members than there are public sector union members - and that's changing rapidly.
