The unions are unnecessary in a modern society. They protect only the worst workers, they encourage work slowdowns, and they steal wages from families in the name of "dues". 10 years of working alongside Teamsters taught me one thing: the unions are pathetic slimeballs who do nothing but drain the company they work for. 10% of union labor does 90% of the work, 80% pretend theyre working, and the bottom 10%, well, theyre just coddled by the union stewards/reps. Its a pathetic and embarrassing showcase of American workers...and only the union slaves love the union.
