What you "think" is irrelevant (and "whether" is a question). As, again, everyone with even the most tenuous grasp of economics knows, companies must pay MARKET WAGES because they compete for labor just as they do for every other resource (the notion of monopsony has been completely discredited). No one suggests that companies underpay for steel or wheat or oil or any other resource because the price is determined by supply and demand. I am not "scared" of collective bargaining and have no problem with anyone freely engaging in it so long as government doesn't intervene and companies (or states) can choose to ignore the union unless it provides some other benefit (which it doesn't).
