Abimommy I'm with you on the Union issue. My step dad was in the construction/laborers union. Without a college education, a Union can still help guarantee a living wage, and help protect workers from unsafe working conditions. Are they perfect? No.

to fully support unions. Ralph Nader also claims to support a 'living wage' but didn't want to pay his own employees one?
"Appearing at a union annual convention, Nader offered himself as a strong alternative to Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Al Gore.

All they get is the phrase, ‘You’d better support us because the Republicans are terrible.”
