There is nearly a century of labor law on the books to legitimately protect workers from mistreatment, and to protect employers from unscrupulous union tactics. The marriage between unions and worker centers basically tosses all of these rules out the window, shifting the important balance in labor relations completely in the favor of unions.

The need for fair and balanced labor relations is as important today as it was 100 years ago.
