GTA IV on Unions

Writes Joshua Warren: “I was just playing the new videogame Grand Theft Auto IV, when I heard a quote that just thrilled me.

“The main character is told that a construction union is blocking the construction of a new hospital, and his next mission is to ‘clear the union members out’ of the construction site. Confused, the protagonist (a recent immigrant) voices his concern about attacking the simple union workers.

“He’s then laughed at and told ‘union’s just another word for mafia!’

“Needless to say, I was very pleasantly surprised to hear that in such a mainstream game.”
