Can a company in these troubled times afford to pay all the benefits the Unions demand?

With the loss of so much USA industry due to EPA rules, carbon caps, OSHA regulations and labour laws. When are people going to realize that they are driving their jobs away?

When the company closes and these people join the unemployment line what are they going to do then. Oh I forgot then they will probably be eligible for medicaid. That will pay 100 percent of all medical costs at the governments expense.
