Great overview of what's really at stake. I am very proud to have voted for the NDP since they took a stand against the further erosion of Unions in Canada.

Some of the most disturbing sentiment I've read online about the Postal strike is from people claiming to work non-union jobs that earn low wages who WANT to see the Postal Workers brought down to lower wages and less benefits. Instead of looking at their lives and realizing that the existence of Unions help raise wages for everyone, they want Unionized workers crippled and brought low so that that the working class is all equal -- equal on the bottom floor. I think people's anger is directed at the wrong people.

I don't get it. A rising tide lifts all ships, right?
