I mentioned in my post that I oppose laws that give private unions special advantages, like mandatory membership and dues. Do you have something against voluntary associations of employees used to bargain for better pay and benefits? I don’t.
You make it sound so benign.
It's not benign.
If the employers had the right to fire striking workers, it might be, but they don't. Since they don't, the company management is held by brute force to pay more for less, meaning more capital for less work, which is the ultimate outcome of most union deals. That and violence.
Just ask the auto makers. Or the people in Wisconsin (or me).
Those voluntary associations would be fine if they didn’t have all kinds of laws giving them special advantages over employers—and they do.
