And yet still far too many economic and historical ignoramuses believe that unions a) created the middle class, b) ended child labor, c) helped win WWII, d) improved the economy, e) improved working conditions, f) gaves us the 8-hour work day or the weekend, g) helped integrate the workplace, etc. The FACTS are exactly the opposite: The free market gave us ALL of these [f was Henry Ford for entitely capitalistic reasons] and unions strongly opposed the last. Union mythology, alas, remains pervasive.
