There are always opinions. Opinions are not truth. The truth is that Unions came under serious attack in the 1970’s under Reagan, which reduced their numbers by the thousands. This date ...coincides with the stagnation of wage increases, and the decline in the middle class. Not one single person I have spoken to knows why Unions came about in the first place. Corporate propaganda mills have separated Unions from their real purpose, to be seen as private parasitic organizations rife with crime and feeding on the prosperity generated by industry. Most people have never heard of the ‘labor movement’ there is such a great advantage to keeping education out of the hands of the workforce.
