Top 10 labor union woes

Top 10 labor union woes

An annual Gallup showed that unions are close to the bottom on the list of which institutions Americans have confidence in, even trailing the banking industry. Some 42 percent want unions to have less power compared to only 25 percent that want them to have more. And with government workers compiling more than half of the union members nationwide, that number is likely to grow as taxpayers want to know why public servants get such a sweetheart deal.
Simple solution, stop letting unions contribute to candidates for office that will have any say in the union contract. Problem solved.

CORRECTED-U.S. foreclosures up for 1st time in 27 months

Last year mortgage foreclosures were essentially halted as lenders re-configured their processes to actually, you know, comply with the law.  Now that lenders have consulted lawyers and gotten things in order, foreclosures are going to start.  However the reprieve did nothing for borrowers who had too much house and not enough income to cover that fat ARM. 

It would been a smart time to refinance, but doing that often requires an ability to pay for it and with so many people under employed and/unemployed, a refinance is hard to accomplish.

The fact of the matter is, this is a market correction that has to happen.  As painful as that is for me personally to say.
