so you think a union will help you?

this is for all you out there that think a union would be your savior. What everyone forgets is that unions are just like mcdonalds, their a business. do you really think a union cares about their members? they just want to organize as many places as possible, so that the union dues fills up their wallets.
every mcd employee who wishes to get unionized must remember 1 important thing---not all mcdonalds restaurants are big time money makers. some restaurants just get by. do you really think these restaurants will remain open if a union arrives? the union will push wages up and eventually close the restaurant. this is perfectly legal if it is not financially viable for the restaurant to continue operating. so yes folks, you might get a union, but you will lose a job. all you folks who want a union, lose your egos and stop trying to get your 15 mins of fame by unionizing a mcdonalds. if you have problems there are many other ways to get it corrected, than putting your money into union coffers, and possibly losing your jobs. I know for a fact that there are many good caring people in the mcdonalds managers system who will take the time to listen and take action to fix your problems.
