Collusion, illegal, as defined by Webster is when Business get together to oppress
Workers. I completely agree since true competition for labor talent is when the marketplace works best.
So riddle me this batman? Why are Unions even legal? I understand why they originated, but how can you argue that they are good for anyone today? They cost the members money, they cost the businesses money, they make labor more costly by doing this which is passed through to the consumer in the form of higher prices, they gain nothing by doing this in productivity, and they are the collective body of talent holding out against business unless their terms are met (whether peaceful or by protest). Then why?
Maybe someone can explain that to me one day.
Idea-   What about a “Right to Work” national initiative? Why should we allow labor to hold business hostage? Why not let them have a venue to get fair wages and affordable benefits, but not at the price of losing our competitive advantage, and therefore pushing jobs overseas for all the wrong reasons? The best idea is when Companies and Labor meet in the middle and do what is best for the business- not what is best for one party or the other. In good times, all should benefit. In tough times, all must be willing to give something up. When someone does something bad, they should be held accountable. When someone is not as productive they should be dealt with, not lost based on lack of seniority.
Idea-   IF Unions are part of the solution, not part of the problem- why don’t they self-police? IF a member does something which threatens the company and labor (drinking on the job as an example), why wouldn’t the Union deal with it? IF a member is underproductive, why wouldn’t the Union deal with it and retrain or remove them for everyone’s’ benefit? Currently, the opposite is true- the stronger the Union the more security you have, and that translates into poor habits and behaviors in the workplace.
Side Note-   This would include ALL government jobs as well. At what point did a Government job become an easier, more secure and more rewarding career path? It is my belief that all jobs should be paid fairly for its time, all jobs should have a route toward retirement which is contributed to, all jobs should have a benefits package which can be paid for in the future, not just a burden on society.
