For every union anecdote you conjure up (and another poster somewhere already debunked the Twinkie one, so you should probably drop that one), I can come up with an ENRON, or a Worldcom, or a Tyco. Corporate management malfeasance, greed, and corruption has killed many businesses, and cost lots of people some serious fortunes.

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.
