Tone deaf: The union representing maintenance crews at Belmont is threatening to go on strike on Friday, just prior to the Belmont Stakes where the horse “I’ll Have Another” has a chance to win the Triple Crown.

With more than 100,000 fans expecting to attend the race as well as millions more watching on television, a strike will do wonders in sealing the union’s image in the public’s eye.

    I’d hate to see this important race, with Triple Crown implications, postponed because of something so idiotic -but in a way, it could be the best thing that happened. It might really open a lot of eyes to the outright sefishness of labor unions. Most of ’em have it WAY better than other workers & STILL they demand more & more – it never ends. No wonder so much industry & business goes overseas – the unions have driven ’em out of America…
