re: #214 gymmom

I assume you saw the movie “Matewan”. I grew up in WV and therefore was immersed in the “unions are good” culture. (Even though my dad was a company man in the chemical factory) I’m also have mixed feelings on unions now because I know they were necessary and can see the destructive abuses of the current unions.

The DC Metro is union. It’s very poorly run, almost incompetent. And apparently it’s incredibly hard for any Metro employee to be fired.
