In his letter, Don Bevineau bemoans the loss of union membership since 1945. I wonder if it has occurred to him that unions have been their own worst enemy. Unions reward tenure rather than performance.
We need to revitalize and strengthen America’s unions. In 1945, more than one-third of all Americans were union. Today, just under 12 percent are.
