Tell me what exactly it is that you people have against unions. Is it that the employees make "too much money"? I could understand the outrage with some of the public-sector unions, but you guys are ridiculous in your lumping ALL unions together. The union that I mentioned does plenty good for its employees. What do you have against that?
and carnegie was some of both
he left a huge amount to charity
but he also encouraged Unionization in the steel business. sounds good right? well what it did was drive up wages that some of his competition could not pay and they went out of business-he then bought their companies and CRUSHED the unions
Two reasons number one workers were from all over and didnt have any notions about what or what shouldnt be at that point and two and heres the big one...there wasnt a NEED for unions yet....remember something Unions were created by the mistreatment and abuse of employees by employers...they have no one to blame but themselves...their whining makes me snicker.
Employers wouldn't DARE treat their workers poorly when they know the employees have people looking out for THEM plus free legal representation.
