    Very good point, Jane. Ironic, isn't it? In almost all other cases I'm very pro Union - but not in this one, for reasons I don't need to elaborate on at this late date. Rob

    Well the other side is when unions are fighting climate change legislation (and this is NOT new, some unions have done so for awhile, fought climate change legislation, climate change candidates etc.):

    unions give workers more power in their employment collectively, the problem is some employment should not even exist.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Due to my oft repeated posting that I am avoiding controversy I will not directly address that in your post which I find of interest other than to say - interesting take regarding some employment should not even exist - especially in light of union(s). I wonder what other folks take is on this - but I also don't want to start issues/controversy. Rob

    Curious what employment shouldn’t exist?

    Employment in the fossil fuel industry ultimately. It could be argued many other things as well, but that was what the article was about, unions fighting climate change legislation. I've seen this happen up close and local. Fossil fuel unions campaign to derail excellent candidates with strong climate platforms.

    Lots of employment shouldn't exist. Human trafficking comes to mind.
