Liberty and the UnionsSubmitted by Obi-Wan Kenobi on Thu, 02/14/2013 - 18:00
When asked why I don't work for the union, I simply state that I am philosophically opposed to unions.
I usually add that I am not anti-union, just anti government in bed with unions, the same way I am anti government in bed with business, etc.
To me, if employees can unionize without using government power to assist them, then power to 'em. It is the government involvement that I stand opposed to.
I have a friend who is leaning toward liberty ideas and currently wants to switch jobs from non-union to union. What input would the great minds of the DP have for a situation like this? My instinct is to advise him not to work for "the dark side", but he would get higher pay and benefits.
Also worth mentioning here, the one guy he talked to in this union company is a Ron Paul guy. What do you guys think?
