They don't need unions. If they treat their employees like shit, the employee will leave for a company that won't. It's that simple.
Nope. It's not that simple.
Not in an unemployment crisis like we've been experiencing. Not when you're less educated. Not during an era where the ability to physically relocate is dropping like a rock.
Employees have leverage, but the vast majority of it is with the employer. That doesn't change with unions, but it does level the playing field more.
