Quote: Organized unions, organized government and all other forms of organized crime do not actually create jobs, but only stifle industry and send entire economic sectors either underground or offshore.
I think of it as a big pendulum
When it swings too far to one side, like say for example when there were no unions, as there were in the early 1900's, and factory owners clearly took advantage of their power, there were many examples of abuse, and so the unions were created, thrived, and controlled some of the abuses
then the unions got fat, got too much control, and became abusive themselves, and then that set the stage for other countries to create a competition to our factory production, with lower wages, controlled health-care costs, and thus lower costs per widget, and now we have lost a lot of our manufacturing industry in this country
so hopefully, the forces are building to help swing that big pendulum back the other way now...
