    Both corrupt business men/women and unions are equally to blame for the greed that is woven into the fabric of big business in this country. And apparently public service as well.

    Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely. It's the human condition. We're all guilty

    Unions would not exist if Corporations had not been so corrupt and greedy.

    Yeah....that falls woefully short of explaining teachers unions and public employees unions....which is exactly the thrust of the article.
    Besides, that evil corporate capitalist shtick is just plain old and tired. 60-100 years ago those unions were relevant. Today, they're just cash grabs for union leaders and political hacks.

    Teachers Unions raised pay to bring teachers out of Poverty wages. while public service unions did the same thing.
    While Mayors and others get a lot of perks. Taking bribes , Taking kick backs from suppliers and others. But of course all you see are bad Unions. You think Corporations are sweet littel Angels working under the “Market will always find it’s balance?” You have been paying attention.

    Nuke power operated properly and regulated is more sustainable and cleaner then any other energy.
