I recognize the need for organized labor to deal collectively with unscrupulous corporations, but somehow some stuff is outawhack.

Agreed, none of it is perfect, in my own group, I kept pushing for more awareness of the technology, how we were using it, and that top leaders should be looking for engaging, using tech to spread the word, stay in touch with the membership, a simple web page turned into a stone wall if I wanted to do it with the National's blessings, so I did my own, externally, but that wasn't the point, they needed to know what the members worked on, understand the issues...

There has to be a check and balance, neither side can be let run wild.... One Ive been watching is the prison guards, likely one of the deadliest jobs around. We recently went on a private tour of San Quentin, as my FIL had been a foreman there, was murdered by an inmate 20 years ago.. Those guards are all business, attentive every minute of every day, know the balance of gangs, their job, and dealing with management... But they've also boosted their pay scale way up there, somehow it needs to be moderated, but don't kill the Unions. Imagine a non-union workplace like that, favorites getting the soft jobs, the rest left to deal with the population as best they can... Not a fun place at all... Literal backstabbing at all levels...

There are no easy answers, but killing the Unions is not in any of them...
