8. Yes because.....

 

giving workers the ability to collectively bargain for wages and benefits is somehow so, well, "un-American".

Unions are the ONLY things that give employees any leverage with employers. Unions are what gave us the 8-hour workday, the 5 day workweek, overtime, vacation time, sick pay, pensions, safer working conditions, etc.

I'll bet Gerald McCormick has not worked anything over 40 hours a week in his entire life. We know that R legislators mostly like to go on vacation.
