Default Unions are bad for business

Unions are bad for business. If you don't believe me read this:

http://network.nationalpost.com/np/b...le-unions.aspx

Here are some hourly wages earned by some Toronto city employees (keep in mind that these are for senior level employees):

Cleaner, light duty - $21.30
Recycling advisor - $30.98
Senior cashier - $32.68
Receptionist - $23.70
Recreation co-ordinator - $32.68

In the privatye sector they'll be lucky to get half of these wages, and did I mention that they are asking for more?

I wonder how difficult is to get a job as a cleaner in the City of Toronto? What special qualifications do they have to be so grossly overpaid? And what about the 18 sick days per year? In most private companies there is a wage freeze and these guys ask for more....

No wonder why The City of Toronto doesn't have any money. Look at our streets - the city is indeed in decline.

Unions are not bad for business and they role is to protect the employees from greedy employers.

And to make sure that the union members are overpaid. This is simply bad business and many businesses will fail because of the union parasites.
