Good opinion column! I just for the life of me cannot figure out why some people just don't get this!

Republicans tell a tired, cynical story about all of this, insisting that union busting is, somehow, good for the economy and good for workers. It's the same old trickle down nonsense.

Democrats, on the other hand, have done too little to defend unions and worker rights.
But aren't unions prone to corruption? Sometimes (although way less often than right wingers would have us believe). And some parents are abusive. Some doctors commit fraud. And some bankers are greedy and mendacious. It does not follow that we'd be better off without families, doctors, or a financial sector. Nor does it follow that workers are better off without unions.
