    Darn, the union picketing of Wal-Mart failed. Wal-Mart's sales went up instead of down. I wonder if the union concept is a bit of a thing of the past?

    There was a time when they were needed. That time is over.

    Just another sign that the economy is way better than the GOP tried to make us believe during the election.

    So when the corporate overloads tell you that you need to work endlessly just for a meager pittance so they can stay live in luxury... maybe you will think again about the value of collective bargaining... we either hang together or hang separately...

    As long as business owners are allowed to band together in the form of corporations, workers should be allowed to band together in the form of unions. We've seen a lot of corporate bankruptcies since 2008 - should we declare corporations "a thing of the past?"

    The Walmart abuse of the system, forcing us to subsidize its labor demonstrates unions are as relevant today as they ever were.
