This thread is about public unions, not private unions, and that is where the focus should be. There are greedy corporate CEO's just like their are greedy union leaders. Is either greed good? At least with management stock options are results based. Good results mean the company produces and the employees remain employed. What does a private union offer to that scenerio?
How exactly does stripping public employee unions of bargaining rights create private sector jobs?
Public unions don't create jobs, the need for state services does create jobs though.
There are obviously examples of unions who have not helped their members and you often hear union members complain about their unions (even members who wouldn't opt out of a union if given the choice). However, your generalization of the institution based on a few people whose lives have been ruined by unions (I would actually like you to tell these stories because it sounds a little dramatic) shows that you have only examined unions from one perspective and not the entirety of them.

Does it really matter what personal experience I post? Some here will believe it while others won't. Anyone that truly believes unions reward performance is out of touch with reality as unions keep the good employees down and always will.
