I should have gone further than they (unions) outlasted their usefulness.
I thought when they began (in the 20s ?) they served a purpose. To bring working men together and make sure they received a living wage.
When they (unions) first started they were for the WORKING man and then the people that were at the helm, felt POWER. They wanted more power and money.
What happened to the worker?
When we here of unions now, we think of men and women in big cars and houses put there by the WORKERS.
The unions have outlasted their usefulness==the same as a half cent tax. Never will either go away.

Unions, like empires and everything else, are cyclic. They have been in a period of decay as Americans have entered(and perhaps left) a period of great affluence. If Americans end up poor and destitute again, they will serve a purpose again.
