Private sector unions have pushed up the prices on all products they touch. When the prices get too high ALL people look for an alternative which means either non union or worse--the company deports the jobs. Union members do not support other union members either. They buy the cheaper import which is why unions are concentrated in areas inherent to this country. Construction, mining, government and anything else that can not leave. This did not benefit this country or the citizens in general, it simply forced others to pay more for less, and stifled other industries because others had to over pay for other products.
