    Some guy walked in and said, "Hey I've got a great idea. You give me part of your money, I won't actually work, but I will get your boss to give you more money! Sound like a plan?" and people lined up to hand him money.

    This is still in practice today. My brother was the president of a union, and they paid him to do nothing but flap his lips.

    If only large businesses could be trusted to be moral and treat workers fairly, there would be no need for unions. Alas, that is not the case in the world today, more is the pity.

    Therefore, I think the government should very likely pass blanket laws dictating a minimum amount that people can be paid for services rendered... What shall we call this concept... Hmm... How about... Minimum Wage?

    A lot of big businesses are getting out of that mindset though. They pay fairly and treat workers fairly without the need for union. My first job was non-union and within one year I was promoted three times and went from making about $7 (I think?) to $12.50 hourly, and then to about $31k per year salary with full benefits and 2 weeks vacation. Man, I was stupid for quitting that job. Oh well, live and learn.

    But what I am saying here is, if only people treated other people like they were people then people wouldn't need to unionize.
    This rant sounds familiar. Have you said it before?

    Maybe we did a mind meld thing and you heard it in my head.
