    That's not what he said. He said my rules or you walk. That gives no room for negotiation.

    The right to collective bargain is legal so no... You can't simply say go somewhere else if your employees want to negotiate.

    Yes, it's a thing called negotiations. It's not just how one person wants it.

    Well for government i agree, but for private businesses, the owner should have as much power as he wants.

    No, he can't. People in the US have the right to collective bargain whether he likes it or not.
