From a discussion of single-earner families at Huffington Post:
"There was a time when people could raise their children on one salary, and do a good job of it.
That was the time when unions were strong.
I talk about it here (How I learned to love the unions) .
Now, the same people who espouse "family values" are usually the same people who pillory the unions.
Interesting, isn't it? The best things for "family values" in the past 60 years were the same unions that the "family values" crowd usually despises.
