    Let me break it down. If an employer in the free market treats good employees poorly the employees can go elsewhere. When it happens enough the poor employer is screwed and rightfully so, and he invites competition.

    Another example, if I'm still greedy exec A and I want to outsource for cheap labor, then I will still vote for politician B. Since all of my employees think like Barbbtx, I will tell them to vote for politician B and they will do it and lose their jobs because "voting for what's in the best interest of the company" is always the best idea!
    Once again, a labor market without government intervention would be better. People would be paid according to the worth of their labor. What a concept! An employer not doing so would soon find himself without employees, and having to invest more in training new ones than retaining experienced ones.

    When unions get greedy, the employees get screwed. It's the old saying, "bears make money, bulls make money, pigs get slaughtered." Unions have proven to be pigs, and the jobs of their union members outsourced.

    Which you also have the Constitutional right to do. After all, if a business does not support your position, you have every First Amendment right to show your disfavor by not doing business with them. After all, we are not the Soviet Union or Iran. We are America, so I won't demonize you for that. I promise. I will support your right to do business with whomever you wish, based on your principles.

    Sure, that happens. Unfortunately, I wasn't talking about this with Barbbtx - I was talking about whether or not it's always in an employee's interest to vote the way that their employer tells them to. The answer is no; it's not. You can talk about this unrelated issue with someone else.

    Okay back to the real world where companies outsource jobs in order to pay people less than the worth of their labor.

    When unions get greedy, the employees get screwed. It's the old saying, "bears make money, bulls make money, pigs get slaughtered." Unions have proven to be pigs, and the jobs of their union members outsourced.
    This sentence is filled with too much emotion-based criticism to be worthy of a reasoned response.
