There is no reason for Unions.
I hear union thug leaders and democrat politicians give major financial reason for them however.
My wife and I were discussing unions last evening. My comments were along the line that being a youngster in the really contentious days in the early 30s there was a need for establishing balance between productivity and compensation. However once the unions got into the government pockets, or visa virsa, our entire free enterprise system was altered. I see no redeeming value reason for any government support of unions just as I believe government should not prevent any group of people from joining together in free will to promote their belief/cause. The only justification for government involvement is to see no laws are broken but not to mandate ‘fairness’. Today’s unions see and are able to use government to enforce their ideas for a ‘new world order’ (Bush1) of communism for the elite.
