Competition in the labor market among employers protects employees from their "corporate masters" *far* better than unions.

Talk about nonsense. Anyone who knows any US history at all knows that is complete BS. That's why unions arose, in fact, because they proved to be the only tool workers had.

There is essentially NO competition among employers, at least not at the blue-collar level (among white collar, there is some). Laborers are expendable. Easily replaced.
