Labor unions are nothing more than the "mafia". They use the same tactics that mobsters used to extort money from shopkeepers and gin-joints in the 1920's. They intimidated, destroyed property, and killed if needed. They bought and paid for city officials, police, and even governors in those years with protection money, bribes, or black-mail.....they do so today with our government representatives. They benefit by large government contracts for services and labor we don't even need. Political power, like a monopoly on government contracts, a Labor Board filled with union supporters, muscle bills that stack the labor rules in their favor, and exemptions from laws that would put them in prison for their destructive and violent tactics.
