Although I do not own a company any more, and never did have more than four employees, I never had a good interaction with a union. I appreciate this site because it's good to know that business owners can get help in dealing with unions. I believe that in spite of some good results from union efforts in our nation's history, the bottom lien score for unions overall are about a minus-5 on a scale of minus 10 to plus 10. If I had a large company here in Florida, I'd be watching out for unions very much, because our Governor is on the make for a presidential bid, and he's a RINO. Even though our state is RTW, that can change. It is good to have a resource like the Labor Relations Institute for companies that need help, especially when our so-called President has never seen a law he won't break for his own advantage.

Big-box ordinance in Chicago

The Chicago city council passed a minimum wage and benefit standard ordinance for Wal-Mart and other “big-box” retailers who want to develop an abandoned steel plant property (I wonder who came up with that idea – I’ll bet it has something to do with why the steel plant property is now abandoned). Not surprisingly, Wal-Mart (and so far everyone else except a Lowe’s store that apparently was on the hook before the ordinances passed) are taking a pass. “If this is the effect that big-box ordinances have on business,” one City Council-member says, “we’re probably cutting off our noses to spite our face.” Duh.
