To the Editor: Letter proved the point
The letter from Mr. [George] Schrum [Nov. 3-9 issue] proved my point about the American way of life. The unions have really hurt this country and still are. Mr. Schrum did the right thing; the first job was hard work, so he quit. He didn’t ask anyone (UNION) to intercede. The next job was hard work, low pay, so he quit; he didn’t ask anyone to intercede (UNION). The next job was one he could do and made good money; he didn’t need a UNION to intercede. The only thing UNIONS have accomplished over the years has sent every one of those jobs overseas. Mr. Schrum proved my point: if you don’t like the work you are doing, quit, get another job. No one has the right to expect an employer (who invests his money) to share his profit with the employee when the employee has been paid a wage he has accepted to do the job.
