Union help stop economic slavery. Economic slavery, You get pay just enough to survive with no healthcare, benefits, sick leave, vacation time, retirement, insurance or help, that is their problem. Companies don’t want to pay for them or be bothered with them, want free employees. Just like retirement, very few, if any, companies have a company retirement program, it push off on the employees to have a 401k plan, which drives the stock market now and benefits corporation stock. A 401K has no backing or insurance, so it can turn into a 201K. Companies don’t want to pay for healthcare either because of cost, so they are pushing that off on employees as well. They don’t want to pay taxes either that is being push off on the America taxpayers. You can see the trend, corporation and the wealthy pay nothing, people pay for everything. But the people are expected to bail them out. Corporations use to pay more taxes than people in the 60’s - 70’s now it is just the opposite. This is why wages are going back backwards.
