What Kind of Country Would we be if Every Job in the United States Were Unionized? Answer, the broke USSA. Liberals speak a good talk about workers rights and livable wages, however, if you were to abandon the free market and pay workers above their market worth then economic disaster would come to the United States. You will never eliminate the bottom 20%. Nevertheless, Karl Marx viewed unions as the vehicle to socialism/communism, which is why the modern democratic party are socialists. If unionization is good for a few companies then they would be good for all companies right? Wrong.
