"...Once [unions] win comfortable contracts, they often become
impediments to the kind of innovation and flexibility essential to
success in today's economy. So in the name of 'job security,' they
undermine a company's--or a nation's--competitiveness. The result, over
time, is less job security for everyone, especially the union
workforce. There's no better example of this than GM, where the UAW now
represents about 74,000 hourly workers, compared to 246,000 in 1994.
