NPR is one of the most reliable news sources available. Any fact checking site will be glad to tell you that.
I haven't posted any memes.
Republican 'right to work laws' were designed to weaken the unions.
Reagan busted the first union, in my lifetime, as a POTUS.
A social safety net is a horrible thing, says Republicans.
Are you even reading the posts?
Jeffrey Dvorkin, a NPR ombudsman did admit to liberal bias at NPR.
You post liberal ideas that often are false or misleading, but often spread like wildfire on the interweb.
Union membership was already falling before Reagan and the 'right to work' laws:
I believe most republicans believe in a social safety net, but not a welfare lifestyle.
I also read your posts, but I often discount the quality of liberal sites.
You do see the slope of the graph you posted make a sharp turn around 1980, right? Your own sources prove Reagan had a LOT to do with the decrease in union membership. Right to work laws were started around that same time frame, as well. Your own source material shows the facts. Why can't you get it.
Jimmy Carter was president up to Jan. 21,1981. You mean he actually did something right? As to the union Reagan supposedly busted, PATCO, they staged an illegal strike against the government. One of the many pieces of paperwork a new federal employee signs is a legally binding promise to not strike against the government, or so it was more than 4 decades ago when I waded through a mountain of paperwork. The Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization busted itself.
