Unions have seen their day of usefulness when employers actually did have dangerous and unfair environments for workers. Since about 1930, this has no longer been the case because employers found themselves competing for workers. Unions keep this from happening and just place a noose around the neck of the employer until it eventually strangles to death! This trend will continue with every business/employer that unions have their hooks into, even the "public" unions which we the people have no say in. Time for them to all be abolished and bring back free markets to allow businesses survive or die naturally based on supply and demand.
