Union members ARE rocket scientists, US unions tell Fox News

13 Aug 2010, By

Here’s something to raise a few smiles this weekend. Right-wing US Fox ‘news’ has come under a tweeting assault from US unions this week after one of their presenters suggested that union members couldn’t have built the Apple i-phone (as one comment said, union members do make the Apple i-phone: just Chinese union members, not US ones). The AFLCIO responded with a list of complex technological products (as well as TV programmes, films and so on) that union members produce in the US, including those fiddly things unionised rocket scientists make. Union members built the USA, and Fox have sort of had to admit that!
