All you have to do is look at how many corporations have closed shop and opened their business in China for cheap low wages. Corporations want cheap wages here in the U.S. Whenever someone is being paid a good reasonable living wage, the people who are being abused by corporations with low wages revolt. Instead of taking their anger on corporations, they become jealous of the people who are being paid reasonable wages because of their unions. Do people honestly prescribe to the fact that businesses want to hire people at a reasonable living wage? They lobby against minimum wages!!! Could anyone raise a family on $7.25 an hour? Is your 10 minutes of hard work without benefits worth $1.20?
Although I feel unions are needed for workers to get a good livable wage or help prevent being taken advantage by their employer, their are some changes within unions that should be changed. For instance, unions will protect lazy workers or workers that are completely incompetent. By doing this it hurts the image of the company, causes lost sales, creates added expenses, and reduces overall productivity. I don't know too many hard workers including union workers who enjoy seeing someone loafing off.
