Do the various unions affect your business.
Over here they can be very disruptive on a business and in some cases have destroyed businesses. They are very militant in their ways,especially wharf workers (MUA),the
BLF (Builders Labourers Federation),The Australian Workers Union and the Painters and Dockers. Do you have the smae problems in the US??

There are no unions that affect my lawn business. However I am a member of th UAW (United Autoworkers Union). Over the years unions have been dissapearing. Back in the early union days alot of strong arm tatics were used. These days , I don't think unions are as strong as they use to be.

If you choked a Smurf, what color would it turn?

I'd give my right hand , if I could be ambidextrous!
