Akbar Al Baker: No holds barred


You may argue to have provided the best facilities and rights to the workers, but if it is dependent on the decision of a single man then there is no guarantee that the rights of the workers are secured in bad times.


?If you did not have unions you wouldn?t have this jobless problem in the Western world? It is caused by unions making companies and institutions uncompetitive and bringing them to a position of not being efficient.?

I am not a fan of Unions, but as a German national I have to disagree strongly.

The cooperation of German Industry with Unions, even the Industry doesn't is in favor of Unions, makes German companies very competitive.

By the way you should not say the word "rubbish" when loosing arguments.
