It wasn't unions that made workplaces safer, gave us weekends, ended child labor, reduced the workweek to 8 hours, and paid workers more money. It was the free market and technology that did all that.

You'll never make it in a union shop!

Unions played an important role in American history. At the turn of the last century, a lot of workers encountered awful and dangerous conditions on the job. The workers banded together, demanded changes and got them. After that, Americans joined unions and the dues began to roll in. Riding that wave of compulsory money, union bosses rose. With that much money flowing, corruption wasn’t far behind.

Times have changed. The economy, country and world have changed. But unions haven’t. Union membership among non-government employees has fallen off a cliff. But although membership is down, their power remains large.

Why? Because...
