Another good union piece, this time written by a former Senator.

I was at a party recently when a person I had never met before barely said hello before telling me that he hated labor unions.

He clearly did not understand the true purpose of unions.
Because workers in labor unions get a voice in the economy that they helped create, and this irritates non-unions workers and employers.

These days, many employers concentrate on growing their business and profits at what seems to be at the expense of employees. They are shirking the responsibility of providing comprehensive health insurance, pension plans or 401K plans, reasonable work hours and other safeguards.

Employers are making jobs and salaries less secure through downsizing, using more outside contractors, and sending work offshore. Made in America has been replaced by Made in Everywhere Else But America.
