Unions hate workers and have the ULTIMATE "I got mine jack" mentality.
It's more of that -- they want to be FULL PARTNERS when times are good -- and get more than their "fair share" due to the "sweat on their backs" that produced that evil profit.
When times are bad, they simply want to be extremely overpaid employees, while management is completely responsible for all the loses.
So, when times are good, they threaten strikes knowing that the laws in are their favor and knowing that management has to capitulate or lose out on making profits during the good times.
When times go bad, they refuse to scale back and strike when management explains AND SHOWS that their current arrangement will drive the company out of business. But, they still strike and run the company into the ground because of the blackmail they used during good times.
