    Why are people so against the worker side of the free market acting on their freedom to associate?

    Because it's not the freedom to associate, it's collusion to fix prices. If businesses colluded in this way, would we respect their freedom to associate? Of course not, we'd shut them down for violating antitrust laws, and rightly so. Labor unions are essentially just a monopoly on labor.

    In this particular case, it's especially silly since the organizer is a part-time employee. He hardly even has a stake in the fight.

    Someone who is part-time is bottom of the rung, and yeah it sucks to be that guy in the rat race, but it's not because the company is trying to hurt its employees.
    It is the Apple retail store that the person is seeking to unionize. Microsoft and Google do not have bricks and motar stores that can be compared to Apple

    It is not a monopoly on labour, especially as the number of union workers in the US is quite small compared to non union.

    But if you want to go that route, Apple would have the monopoly on the jobs, and being the supplier seeking to control wages it is colluding against workers to fix labour costs

    How is it possible that Apple employees are not already unionized? Next thing you know you are going to tell us that parts for the Imacs, Ipods, Ipads, and IPhones come from China!!!

    Has Steve Jobs ever advocated more unionization? Or are you just making **** up and talking out of your ass?
