Fact is, Salty, if companies got together and decided that all beans would cost $1.29 a can, that would be a monopoly and illegal.

before that and before labor laws workers heads were beaten in by company goons and no one was charged for it.
read some history and truly know your worth.
if your company has no union fine. if you work for one with a union fine by me.
what you will see in wally world is people having no seniority and doing the job of three people then getting replaced by newcomers for less wages. screwed out of retirement and shiddy benefits
you wanna pee out your eyes for a multi billion dollar corporation that treats workers the way their government lets them fine
chinese workers are locked in and America is the only non union Nissan plant.
why? cause mississippians were propagandized just like you.
we used to share in a good economy. no more
A little short on the actual facts here Salty.
Non union plants are in many states of our nation and pay the same as union plants. Better work conditions, ( including merit pay raises and promotions) because they need to compete for good workers to stay competitive.

The fact is if companies banded together like unions they would be indicted for creating a monopoly. It is why Unions are exempt from RICO.
