Unions Still Dying in California

medicine times;”>Great news for freedom. In California fewer workers are paying bribes to unions than last year. The ability of the unions to force folks to walk off the job, slowdown work and control management is slowly coming to an end in California.

“According to data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics today, the union membership rate fell to 11.1 percent, with just 14.6 million wage and salaried workers maintaining membership.

In 2013, the union membership rate was 0.2 percentage points higher, at 11.3 percent.

The rate of union membership has been on a steady decline over the past three decades. It grew slightly from 12.1 percent in 2007 to 12.4 percent in 2008. During President Obama’s first year in office, however, it fell once more.”

When given a choice, like teachers going into Charter Schools, the answer is clear Californians want freedom from extortion and blackmail. Now if all teachers in California were allowed to vote it could become another Wisconsin. When they got the chance, it caused one union to be closed for lacked of members and the other teachers’ union to have massive layoffs of staff.
