No, in principle they are not.
they destroy the honor of work.
Only when they are allowed to function as monopolies. As profit making ventures competing in the business of supplying skilled labor, they would be marketing each person to maximize profit. The National Labor Relations Act of 1933 changed all of that.
you do not think that the destruction of public education by unions is not evil?
you do not think that the election of barack obama by union monies for the purpose of bailing out gm and chrysler unions and their pensions is not evil?
this has been going on for decades. i remember a canadian friend who said he worked at gm canada prior to ww2. the first automatic transmission came out.
the unions were opposed. so, they instructed their members to pocket one bolt per transmission.
iremember seeing the leader of singapore on tv in the 1980s. he said: “we could not have built our nation if we had adversarial unions as the u.s. and britain.
and, that’s it. “adversarial”. unions destroy the honor of work.
