Surprisingly, from my very prounion family background, I am for the most part anti-union. They had their place in society at one time, but as local/state/federal governments came up with OSHA, minimum wage, fair Labor Acts, etc.... They are of less and less use. There are still some industries that do not care for the well being of their workers while they are working, but there are enough government regulations in place to make up for those. Unions are getting to be no different than the large corporations they are a part of, looking out for the almighty dollar, be it American or Canadian.
