It definitely makes sense to me. Why do corporations move manufacturing operations to China? Obviously because there are fewer labor regulations. If we banned all unions here outright we wouldn't move immediately into sweatshops, but we would be one giant step closer. You really think that companies will take it upon themselves to provide the best working conditions and salary for you out of the goodness of their hearts? No, they will provide what people demand, as is true in all scenarios of complex social interaction. Unions, while flawed, at least give people the hope that if their rights are trampled upon, they have some recourse to have their concerns addressed. Yes, I would rather have this than no union at all. It make sense.
