By Brendon S. Peck
Confronted with an unwelcome intrusion, employees at a Target store in New
York rejected unionization and dealt a blow to the grand plans of the UFCW.
That average Americans continue to stand against these job-killing, profit-
leaching forces is most encouraging. But make no mistake, the fight is far
from over.
Labor unions are in decline and desperate. Today, union membership is under
12% of the U.S. workforce -- it was over 20% in the 1980's. Among retail

Civil Marriage vs. Civil Unions
What is marriage?
Marriage is a unique legal status conferred by and recognized by governments
all over the world. It brings with it a host of reciprocal obligations,
rights and protections. It is also a cultural institution. No other word has
that power and no other status can provide that protection.
Married couples have 1,138 federal rights, protections and responsibilities
