It is a fact that the well-being of the middle class is inextricably tied to the well-being of the unions.
When unions became strong, the country prospered. When union-busting became public policy, the middle class stagnated and went into decline.
Privatizing state liquor stores is Gov. Tom Corbett's way of union-busting. Five thousand union jobs will be replaced by minimum-wage employees with no benefits who will be paying their taxes on these meager wages.
