Unions are not so much a problem as the lack of balance between unions and revenues. Many times there is no ‘room’ for more, as is the case with Chicago Teachers unions and raising taxes when their earnings are over $70K per year + benefits. However, the idea of ‘forced’ inclusion, mostly without protection or real benefit, is ridiculous. That last part, and only that, is what should be taken into account. No protection or real benefit, no support.
