    All labor benefits from unions - both union and non-union.

    Then why do you have to force people to join unions? Why do you have to forceably take union dues?

    They have the choice. They could work somewhere else. If business owners felt so strongly, they wouldn't have accepted closed shop deals.

    BTW, I know of no one who is in a trade that would choose not to work for union wages and benefits.

    Aren't the unions still fuming over the decision to make them give workers enough notice when they intend to take money for political campaigns?

    Unions don't like giving workers choices and that is creepy.

    Businesses don't. It bleeds them to death. The proof of that is overwhelming.

    Now STFU.

    It's not creepy when you understand the reality. Unions like to vote as a block for pro-labor candidates and policies. That is the opposite of the Koch brothers trying to coerce their employees to vote for pro-management (anti-labor) candidates and policies.

    Because they can get all of the benifits of the union without paying dues. It would be like someone not paying income tax, sales tax, and payroll tax usIng and benifitting from everything those taxes pay for.
