Forum Post: An honest question, do you believe labor unions help or hurt the 99% and should OWS be involved with them?

First off, the Gallup poll which shows only 1 in 2 Americans believe that unions actually help the 99%.
At the end of the day, I believe that OWS shacking up with the Teamsters will cause them to lose credibility. The Teamsters is not just a labor union, but a very questionable labor union with a checkered past. I do not believe the Teamsters have helped the 99%...furthermore, I believe the Teamsters are actually responsible for the high unemployment rate we currently enjoy...
