You bet they will and THAT'S what they will pay, can you make a good living on the minimum wage? Seems like every time economic problems come up someone wants to blame the unions who have done more to raise the standard of living in this country than anything else. Just like every other organization, including some of which are government controlled, some unions have had their share of legal problems but don't blame them for the economic problem the country faces today, we as consumers who INSIST on buying those cheap imports are to blame! Maybe you are right those damned unions should all be forced to close and let the American companies lower the wages and working conditions closer to our Chinese competitors and then maybe we can compete with them.

United we stand, divided we beg

100% agree. How quickly we forget! Like having weekends off? Me too, and before unions we didn't have that. Like having a living wage? Unions. Do we realize that companies used to hire brute squads to beat their workers into submission? Did I actually read an argument on here about a union worker complaining because he made too much money?! The whole point is to make more money and have more time off. NO that doesn't mean you are lazy at work, but it does mean that you always keep pressure on your employer to treat you better. After all, they're always keeping pressure on us to perform at a higher standard!
