    Default Public opinion turns against labor unions in California

    I really cannot figure people out. They feel we don't have the need for unions now? If anything, we need them more than ever!
    The public’s view of labor unions overall is highly partisan, with a majority of Democrats supportive of organized labor and a majority of Republicans opposed.

    But labor unions have lost support they once enjoyed among independent voters. While 48 percent of independent voters said in 2011 that labor unions do more good than harm, just 39 percent say so today. Among independent voters, a plurality – 44 percent – say labor unions do more harm.

    “All they really care about is getting their dues,” said Thomas O’Ferrall, a 55-year-old heavy equipment operator and Republican from Ione. “When unions started it was a good thing. It was about people and rights and protecting the people. But it’s so far away from that anymore.”

    The right wing, anti union, propaganda machine is working well. Spout lies and BS and the sheeple just eat it up.

    Can't people look around them and see what is happening? Or is it that if it doesn't affect them, then it doesn't matter? I for one get my facts before I let anyone's opinion sway me either way.

    You are a small percentage of the population that actually investigates things. Most just believe what the corporate mouth piece spews and go on about there every day lives with their heads in the sand. If you remember we had so called "Union members" on these boards that continued to perpetuate lies about our Unions.

    Yes, I do remember and IMO those are the kind of people I am talking about when I say if it doesn't affect them, then they don't care. I am sure there are people out there that have been badly affected by this economy but choose to blame it on unions rather then get the facts but for the most part, I think it is usually people that haven't been affected so they do not give a damned.
