We aren’t mad at these particular union folks who were actually quite pleasant and have no choice but to show up as their union bosses demand. However, we are saddened by so many union institutions who hold back Philadelphia development, construction and generally tax progress.
As American’s we should all value our ability to make choices about who we hire or don’t hire. We shouldn’t have to worry about people intimidating or threatening us when we don’t hire them. Unions had a time and place and were very valuable when workers didn’t have a voice or the workers rights they do today. They have abused their power, they corrupt our political system and do far more damage than good. The crazy part is, they hurt themselves by holding back development and reducing the amount of jobs available.
So, we ask all of our readers to do the opposite here and make sure to book your next dinner or lunch at Zahav, Percy St BBQ or enjoy an incredible donuts or coffee from Federal Donuts!
