There are obviously alot of Lassiez-Faire capitalists on this board who seem to support complete deregulation of the private sector, especially when it comes to worker/employer relations. From what I gather, many of you would like to see all labor laws repealed. However, these same people are also staunchly anti-union and blame the unions for the majority of the problems with the economy today.

So, my question for you is this: Do you Lassiez-Faire capitalists want to see both the repeal of all federal labor laws and the abolishion of the unions?

Depends on the labor law.

Unions though? Fuck 'em.

people have the right to unionize.
companies should also have the rights to say they don't want to work with unions.

Not all the laws, just the unfair ones.

Unions, yes be gone. In our quick to litigate society we don't need unions.

Normal labor laws like 40hr work week, child labor laws, OSHA etc are all fine.

Crap laws like needing a reason to fire someone need to go.

Edit: Not saying unions should be illegal, but outside the company. If they decide to strike one day, it should not be illegal for the company to fire them all.

Unions should not be able to force people to join the union once they are hired by the company. This closed shop crap is BS.

I think the government's role ends at the point of contract enforcement. e.g. if an employer or employee promise each other something... they should be required to comply with the terms of their agreement.

No.

Your question is too broad. If you want to be specific about a particular law, do so.

Unions should be forced to operate in a free market. No special treatment under the law, no closed shops, no protection from their illegal acts, no exemption from anti-trust and RICO statutes.

If a group of workers want to form an organization and offer their services in bulk, go for it. However, no one should have to join a union for any reason whatsoever.

Unions are Marxist and have been groomed by communists since WWI. If they want to compete with free workers, let them do so.
Link Posted: 1/24/2006 1:53:27 PM EDT
Screw them both. Let the fair market dictate what is a fair wage/work environment. If the workers want to Unionize fine the company doesn't have to deal with them if they don't want too, also workers who don't want to join the union can opt out.

Unions and labor laws are strangling the productivity of the country.

yes, that smilie really proves your point there, steve.

Here, let me show you a little example. It's real world economics.

Liberals think cigarrettes are bad. They want to tax cigarrettes more to discourage smoking.

So higher cost of smoking = fewer cigarrettes bought.

Environmentalist liberals want increased taxes on gas to discourage consumption and pollution from excise driving.

So higher cost of gas = less gas used.

Now, let's have the government mandate a higher cost of labor. So for an employer it costs $100 a day to do a job instead of $80.

Will that result in MORE labor being used, or less labor being used, steve?

Let me know if you figure that one out.

Yes they can, and they do. You may not, but many companies do.


Steve why do you feel that business is out to fuck their employees? (don't deny you feel this way)


Because they are:

- Enron forced employees to accecpt company stock as their retirement plan, and when the executives of Enron realized that the stock was going to lose it's value they issued a company policy forbidding any employee from selling their Enron stock so that outside investors would not become fearful and dump their stock as well.

- Kmart's CEO took millions in personal loans from the corporation to build his home while Kmart was losing money at an astonishing rate. Kmart closed dozens of stores and laid off thousands of employees before their stock was devalued. Eventually the CEO resigned, and on his way out the board of directors gave him a $4 million dollar bonus and forgave the personal loans that he took from the company.

- United Airlines begged (and received) for billions of dollars in federal subsidies to bail them out after 9/11. In return, United filed for reorganizational bankruptcy. During the process they decided to default on their employee pension plan leaving all retired employees and working employees who had accrued retirement money under that plan out in the cold.

I've also had my fair share of personal experiences (the company that came to me my 3rd day on the job and asked me to go to Washington DC for a month after swearing up and down that I wouldn't have to travel comes to mind) as well.

Corporate America is about making money and they'd have no problems cutting wages and benefits while increasing hours and decreasing workplace safety if it meant increasing profits without risking government fines and facility closures.

No, working conditions would deteriorate to match those in communist China, Hondurous, Pakistan and Vietnam as would wages. Why? Because corporations could increase profits by sacrifing workplace safety, forcing employees to work longer hours, paying a lower wage and cutting benefits. And if the employees don't like or refuse to agree, then close the plant in Ohio and ship manufacturing to China, then fire the IT staff and ship IT functions to Bagalore. Once people's unemployment starts running out they'll be ready to work for what ever the corporation decides they're going to pay, for as many hours as their told in whatever hell hole death trap the corporation wants them to work in.
Link Posted: 1/24/2006 2:58:34 PM EDT
SteveO,

Enron did not force anyone to have Enron stock in their retirement plan.

Enron have employees stock options. The purpose of these options is to permit the employees to sell them and make money. The purpose of an option is not to hang on to it. Companies give stock options because it costs the company virtually nothing and makes good money for the employees. However, greed caused many employees to hang onto the stock to get more.

Many employees decided to hang on to them to see how much more they could make. No one was prohibitted from selling at the time of the option or while it was going up.

When it started to fall, there was still time to sell. However, many employees, just like the head guys at Enron, were in their full greed mode and decided to see if it wouldn't bounce. They waited too long to sell. The window was closed briefly.

The error that the employees made was not selling their stock that they were awarded the option on. It is well known in financial circles that is what these options are for.

Correct. I don't care if people end up having to eat rice and live in shitty homes because they're not skilled enough to compete. Having a nice house and top shelf food is not a right. The context in that thread was that I think employers should be able to fire employees for any reason as long as there's no contract preventing it. I don't think this will result in people living in mud huts and starving.



Also, I don't think I said I'm heavily invested in the stock market. I may have said that if you're worried about all this you SHOULD invest, but I didn't say anything about myself.

This isn't about me. I also work in an industry without unions, and I make about the same as you and I do it from the comfort of my own home. Unions don't benefit me directly. I am not effected by the minimum wage, I am not effected by OSHA safety standards and working more than 40 hours a week would benefit me greatly.

However, most Americans aren't in this position. Most Americans have to go to a job everyday and work for a company that sees paying their employees salary, providing them with a safe workplace and letting them go home after a 40 hour week (unless they are paying overtime) as having a negative impact on profits. Think of the money that could be saved by removing the smoke detectors, fire supression system, emergency lighting and using asbestos insulation. Think of the boost to profits if they could pay their workers the same rates that people in China, Mexico, Hondurous, India, Pakistan and Vietnam make. Think of the increased productivity if we could force workers to work 12-16 hour days, without providing lunch periods. Think of the cost reduction if we could eliminate employer funded health and retirement benefits.
