That is true-but the primary reason was that there were virtually no employment, anti-discrimination, and wage laws on the books. Unions were the pre-cursers to that. But now that those laws are indeed on the books, unions serve no purpose other than to keep costs high and unproductive workers employed. Like the covered wagon, the steam locomotive, or the chain gang for that matter-they have outlived their purpose.
