Failure: Unions in America Today

Unions (Trade Unions) were formed under the people mandate to react to the dangerous and extremely difficult labor conditions. There is little evidence that the unions may have enough momentum to be formed these days. However, once they were created Unions became an instrument of racketeering and a power grab by the Unions leadership. And of course the parasitic by nature leadership is relying upon parasitic layer of the society forming a solid and unbreakable alliance. We must distinguish the Unions a hundred years ago from the modern Unions form. The Unions are tended to exploit their image from the past though.

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...
