Unions and going on strike

To all the people who think that unions are the greatest thing since sliced bread and that going on strike is the best thing that can ever happen to you. Remember when the UPS people went on strike last year? Because they went on strike, Americans were forced to use thier competitors ( The US postal service and Fedex)Even after the strike was resolved, many former loyal customers were so upset at the greedy teamsters that they refused to do business with UPS. As a result, UPS lost 10% of thier business and they had to lay off many of the people who striked against them. So I bet those 10% of the workers who were layed off really kicked themselves in the ass for supporting thier strike.
