Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Why the hell do the grocery workers of America need a union? Are they working in squalid conditions? Do they receive a wage that is substantially lower than their output?

No. They want standard of living guarantees. So use groupthink as leverage to cause the employer to pay a higher wage. Where does that cost go? Yep. The consumer.

So what's the union's grievance? "One sticking point is health benefits, with the chains wanting to cut coverage and raise the employees' share of the costs"

My response? Get over it. You know what? We're all paying more these days. Economic conditions dictate that. Costs are higher. Union "sheeple" don't help things.

Is it any wonder why a full week's groceries costs so much? Unions have outlived their usefulness. They only serve to increase the cost of doing business. In the end, it's the grocery buyer that pays.
