Most unions have plenty of faults, no doubt; but belonging to a union definitely beats not belonging to a union!

And I agree that there is a great deal of hypocrisy in politicians and media hacks, criticizing unions for self-interest, cronyism and being out of touch, when they have all these tendencies in far greater measure.

ETA: I had not realized that union membership was now as low as 29%. That's worrying in itself.
