    Does your argument then become nothing more than "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need"?

    No that would be the US government under the control of the socialists in both parties.

    Both sides got a law passed.
    The question I'm asking is, why do unions seem to feel that their success depends upon coercing workers into joining? If the union provides value, why should that be necessary?

    Did you just change the subject? Who could possibly be greater exploiters with no community values than the millions of busybody bureaucrats who work for the federal government? What is more immoral than our rapacious bureaucrats in the Executive Branch and the Congress-critters who infest what used to be great swampland?

    Walmart provides something very few places do any more--convenience--that is the secret to their success. You can get your car worked on while you shop, instead of having to spend twice the time doing both. You can get your clothes and groceries and automotive and basic hardware supplies all in one location without having to make a ton of trips/stops. That costs money. If people did not shop at Walmart or were not willing to work there in sufficient numbers, then Walmart would stop growing and begin declining. Since people are willing to shop and work there, the constant bitching about Walmart is nothing more than an acknowledgment of their success and others' failures. Almost every time I go to Walmart it is for a single reason---they are the only store of their kind open 24/7, and particularly in the middle of the night when I go there. If Target were open at 2 a.m. and I needed something, then maybe I would go there, but nope.

    Unions are democracies and as such run for office to change them.
