If you think labor unions are about any thing except increasing union bosses' power, you're an idiot!
I've said it before and I'll say it again, there is no place for labor unions in America any more. Workplaces are plenty safe and employment laws prevent discrimination or unfair firing practices. The only purpose of unions is to enrich and empower the thug bosses like Bob Trumpka and Bob King by extorting dues from members who were coerced into joining.
They stay in power by bribing soulless politicians like Obama into making laws that protect their extortion racket. Unions are unAmerican and bad for the economy.
