Labor unions are disliked by employers. Companies move to get away from organized workers. Corporations build new plants where there are no unions.

Why, then, do the people working for our tax dollars, not for for-profit companies, and paid with our taxes have the strongest, richest labor unions?

The people who work in the private sector's for-profit industries are constantly belittled for attempting to join or form a labor union, but our civil-servant unions are getting stronger every day.

Plus, the workers who are fought against about forming or belonging to a union keep paying more and more taxes to pay civil servants who have unions.

Is this right? Should everyone stop making, inventing and selling things, and become servants?
