I don't want to get into a discussion about unions and labor as this polarizes people as much as any other religious discussion.

I would like to point out, however, that there are numerous cases where businesses (and municipalities) cannot survive while paying the wages and benefits which unions demand. In this case, the workers will have to settle for unemployment insurance rather than the wages they demanded.
