Union supporters claim unions are necessary to protect workers from greedy corporations. The best way to promote better wages/benefits is to reduce the unemployment rate. As long as there are numerous qualified applicants for every job businesses will not feel compelled to compete for those applicants. This allows free markets to dictate wages/benefits. Labor unions however only promote corruption. Certainly public unions should not be allowed to exist since they depend on my tax dollars for their support. Are they an elite class of citizen that they should be entitled to benefits that I don't have?
