For all the excesses unions may (or may not) be guilty of, without them laborers are at the mercy of their corporate masters. Some companies are reasonable (like the one I work for), and some are extremely callous towards their workers.


That is complete and utter nonsense. Competition in the labor market among employers protects employees from their "corporate masters" *far* better than unions.
