A funny thing happened this morning. During a rather lopsided discussion about unions, the folks at Morning Joe pretended to try really, really hard to think of ANY successful unionized companies. But they couldn't name a single one. They hemmed and hawed and got these strained looks on their faces--but nope. Couldn't come up with one. Not even the company that owns NBC--GE.
What a bunch of dim bulbs.
After all, almost anyone could probably name at least a few successful unionized companies--companies that not only survive, but thrive with a terrific union workforce. Folks have been suggesting many of these companies to add to Talking Points Memo's post on the subject.
You can find the growing list here.
UPDATE: Sorkin apologizes. Good on him--but what about Joe, Mika, and Mike?
