The Center for Union Facts (CUF) has compiled the single most comprehensive database of information about labor unions in the United States. The database contains more than 100 million facts, ranging from basic union finances and leader salaries, to political operations, to strikes and unfair labor practices, and much more. The data comes from various local, state, and federal government agencies that track labor union operations.

My sister the quality control industrial engineer was still telling stories of how American industry was still just beginning to implement some of the methods the Japanese and others adopted after the war -- right up to the end of the millennium.
If anything, the unions were arrogant because the capitalist business owners and executives were insanely arrogant. The truth is that had US executives followed the expertise of those who had been studying US industry, manufacturing workers could have been paid half again what capitalists consider destructive wages and still doubled their profits.

"Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "
