pt3 The problem isn't unions--and people should be very careful in trying to destroy the one entity that gives workers some bargaining power. It's unions in the PUBLIC sector. The trade off in public "service" of lower wages was secured employment and good benefits; the very issue most union members in the private sector face. And there is one other factor that keeps workers in the private sector in check: if they don't produce the company goes bust. Public workers because of their unions continue to produce substandardly. It is the public unions that need to be busted, not those in the private sector.
