I had linked previously to this post before about various governments (CT, MN, etc.) trying to unionize day care providers which I was originally against, but after thinking about it, I am totally for. Unless my logic is flawed, the majority of women vote democrat and are always "for the children." Of course they never pay for whatever the latest, bloated and completely unnecessary government program is, the taxpayer does.
However, if day care providers are unionized the price of an already expensive service is going to go through the roof and most parents do pay for that. Even without unionization I've heard anecdotal stories of mothers opting to leave their job and (GASP!) RAISE THEIR CHILDREN because they were actually losing money going to work. You throw in a 40% price increase with a 50% drop in quality and competence, women will not only be rushing to pull their kids out of day care, they'll abandon the democrat party in droves.
Or is the Captain just high on enjoying the decline on this one?
