It's a Great Time To Celebrate Unions

The labor union held their nose and reversed an earlier decision to reject concession demands proposed by Mercury Marine.
WTOP Excerpt:
Mercury Marine President Mark Schwabero said in a statement after the vote that the company will begin consolidating work in Fond du Lac this year, including moving work from a nonunion plant in Stillwater, Okla., within two years.
The states weren't so lucky.
WTOP Excerpt:
The only winner was the company, he said. "They extorted Stillwater," he said. "They extorted Fond du Lac. They extorted us."
The folks in Stillwater had no problem playing the extortion game with Mercury Marine all the way until they lost.
