Why have unions become the problem?

by Jeffrey Simon on September 15th, 2011

Is uncontrolled monopoly a good thing? Should we allow the big airlines, phone companies, and cable companies to merge?

I think it is obvious that monopolies prove that “power corrupts” and that nobody thinks we should encourage unregulated monopolies.

Unions are no different.

They are unregulated monopolies, and power has led to their corruption.

Next time you hear “unfair labor practice”, you should really think “unfair union practice” as that is today’s reality.

Organization leads to exploitation of the workers by the unions. Dues are extracted at the point of a gun, paid to the union leaders, who take extravagant salaries and benefits, and finally funnel the lion’s share to Democrat politicians, who then protect the unions by more and more laws.

Just another government monopoly run amuck.
