Just thought I'd start a thread that doesn't require registration. Unions, and sympathizers, like to try to intimidate, in whatever way they think they can. My comment is this: "Wei-Ling Huber, president of UniteHere local 2850, which represents the workers, told the crowd that during the last year, Castlewood Country Club has spent three times as much as it would have paid the workers, the money going for lawyers, security and the new staff brought in by the club." Need I say more? It is always about money. So if CCC spent 3 times more - then they must have realized that in the long run they are saving themselves and their clients money. Duh. Read the papers - Greece comes to mind. People in the streets - what's so different here? It's all the same stuff going on around the world. Bravo CCC for standing up to it. I don't play golf or do the country club thing - but if people want to do that, and pay for it - then be thankful for the jobs they create in doing so, instead of criticizing them. This union business has mutated into yet another entitlement - talk about greed - it's called union greed. i don't like "corporate greed" either, but this isn't any better, and definitely not "sustainable".
