The Folly of Unions

17 May 2013, 14:14
A union is a collection of people within a profession that seeks to protect the rights and interests of those people who are members of that union.

That in mind, unions should be dismantled and broken, the current actions by workers unions have left South Africa in disarray.

Currently we are at our lowest economically since the 2008 economic collapse. The ANC has failed for the umpteenth time to improve this nation by bowing to the workers they show preference and provide special treatment to those who make up the workers of South Africa.

These workers by majority are uneducated, black and poor. They are incapable of making up their minds on what they want higher wages or more jobs.

By striking and asking for more wages they aren't just being a pain to the companies who employ them they are a pain in the backside of every tax paying South African there is including themselves. By halting work they wreck havoc upon the economy South Africa.

Making prices shoot up and making the cost of living higher. All so that they may have 20 rand more in their salaries. But this damage is not just affecting local companies oh no many international companies and organizations who have expressed their interest in South Africa have been shut down by the ANC because they would not pander to the corrupt unions.

The South African economy has lost trillions because of the actions of unions. Whilst the government steals billions through corruption, I cannot abide supporters of the ANC or unions because they have done so much harm to this nation.

If history has taught us anything it is that unions weaken the economy to the point where everyone lives in poverty, unions and communism seek to make everyone poor whilst capitalism seeks to give everyone the chance to become wealthier. The ANC cannot be effective because its support thrives off the uneducated workers and without them the ANC would be no more.

The only chance South Africa has against the communist and union menace is to privatize all mines in an attempt to off set an economic revolution that will hopefully boost South Africa back into economic prosperity.

The ANC cannot do this so the only rational action to take is to vote for someone else. The ANC has ruined this country by pandering to the workers, it has ruined this nation because itself is just corruption, the ANC have no qualifications and they have no interest in looking after the nation all they want is money.

The ANC cannot put one group before another and say it is a democracy because it isnt, a democracy looks after all people. Regardless of race and religion a democracy ensures the growth and prosperity of the people and the South Africa is not that democracy.
