Come on. You may not be saying it's all
labor's fault, but you're being very disingenuous about it. You're implying it, by spending 95% of your posts prattling on about how unions are all bloodsuckers, yet offer little more than lip service to the other side. "Sure the CEO was crooked. ANYWAY, unionsunionsunionsunionsunionsunionsunions..."
My experience with unions has been considerably less problematic, and I would be surprised if you have more experience working with them than I do. Yes, there are problems with union management and union workers, but no more problems than with corporate management and corporate employees. It's because people run unions, and people join them. It's because people run companies and people are employed by them.
It's the same thing with faith or religion. The idea may be fine, but when you add people to the mix, you get corruption. The answer isn't just to get rid of the union or force them to bow to the corporation's demands anymore than the answer is to get rid of corporations or CEOs. Either solution is a stupid one that doesn't consider the reality of the situation.
Either side, if left unchecked, will use their power to make life better for themselves and worse the other side. That's why the existence of both sides is so important.
You can keep spouting off about how unions are bloodsuckers all you want. It doesn't make it true at all, and in my experience and in my professional opinion, unions perform just as valuable of a function as do corporations.
