Unions have always been interesting to me. While formed to oppose oppressive governments, they seem to have themselves become oppressive mini-governments. It makes you wonder if people are capable of holding positions of power without abusing those positions.



I don't think there is anything wrong with Unions in principle. They could be very effective partners in economic enterprises, and sometimes they are. But union culture in the developed world is mostly infected with socialism, which in turn combines with short sighted self interest. That makes them a drag on the economic growth that pays their dues.
