When it comes to the relationship between labor and business, I’d be the last person to suggest that unions have done no good. They certainly have. At their best, unions make bad working conditions safer for labor, and that is no small task.
However, I must point out that there is a downside. Rather than attempt to tell the stories myself, I’ll turn this over to the text of an email I recently got from the National Right To Work Committee.
When independent workers refuse to toe the union line, they often lose more than their jobs.
Sometimes they even lose their lives.
For decades, union thugs have beaten, maimed and even killed to extort forced-union dues contracts that compel more workers to pay union dues.
The worst part is, because of the 1973 Supreme Court Enmons decision, union officials are exempt from federal prosecution — as long as the campaign of violence they incite is in the name of so-called “legitimate union objectives.”
The good news is, because Enmons is a matter of statutory rather than constitutional interpretation, Congress has the power to end this outrage.
