5 months agoOK I just read up on it. I can see that causing some grumbling in the private sector unions as well. I understand the ruling was specific to government workes but I`m not understanding why it wouldn`t also include the private unions?

5 months agoOK,
If you want to understand more about the (private sector) scenario, Google(Right to work committee).........I think that should show you that 22 States have that law.
This enables employees in those states to NOT have to join unions at their company site nor have to pay union (dues).
So, I assume that the Supreme Court ruling only engaged Public unions (Federal/State/local) types..........as private employers in 22 States have made it possible for their citizens to avoid the union B.S. by upholding the (Right to Work) option.

OK, now it seems that the (Tariff Wars) are about to have a big effect on Tattoos home state of Maine. In retaliation for the US new tariffs, China in July will begin a 25% tariff on lobsters coming from the US....mostly Maine.
This 25% tariff is on top of an existing 5-10 % tariff that was already in place.
All this happening at about the same time that the China tariffs against Canadian lobsters are being reduced. This will create a giant loss of lobster export business that had become very significant in recent yrs.
Again, the hope remains that the tariff wars (we) started will reach some resolution quickly.......before many jobs are lost because of lost business.

SPIRIT LAKE, Iowa â€“ A Minnesota-based company said on Friday that it is considering moving production of some motorcycles out of the country because of European tariffs, just days after Harley-Davidson announced a similar move A spokeswoman for Polaris Industries acknowledged that the company could move some production of its Indian Motorcycles from northwest Iowa to Poland. "Nothing is definitive," Polaris spokeswoman Jess Rogers said. "We`re looking at a range of mitigation plans." Harley-Davidson announced Monday that it was moving production of motorcycles sold in Europe from U.S. factories to facilities overseas because of retaliatory tariffs.

Made in America is becoming a thing of the past, because the government and greed of investors is driving our manufacturing out of the country.....

Lets not forget that the liberal "left" and their quest for increasing the (minimum wage) has become a big factor in some cased causing jobs to go out of the country......and in even more cases, mechanization and machinery is replacing a lot of (dumbed down) labor........meaning burger flippers and order takers being taken over by machines.
Lets all watch San Francisco.........which just upped their minimum wage to $15 an hour. Recent other places that have jacked up their minimum wage scale have suffered business closings and/or increased mechanization to REPLACE unneeded low skilled workers that libs think need to make more money than their skills (or total lack of) would and/or should generate.
4 months agoI believe that I read somewhere that jacking up the minimum wage to $15 was gonna make a whole lot of people not elligable welfare help. I believe the Libs are screwing themselves. Like Kapernack - demonstrated himself out of a job. Keep watching the snowflakes continue to wrong themselves.
4 months agoRight to work states? More like right to **** the workers states.
4 months agoSadly there is some truth to that, BITWA.
4 months agoYeah BITWA you`re partially right. But here in South Caroline where everything is cheap except food even the Boeing, BMW, Michelin, Volvo, and other large companies pay $20 an hr, and up. Don`t need no unions down here yet.
