Unions are formed to look out for workers.
Oy.

Then exactly what 'benefits' do these all 'powerful employer groups' have, pray tell?

Unions are formed to look out for workers.
Unions have a far more powerful ally than a few business associations, the government. The Federal government has a raft of laws restricting the employer but when it comes to unions the law is stacked in their favor. State's and local governments have their own pro union laws as well as bureaucrats many of them former union officials.

Contemporary unions serve the political agenda of union bosses not the worker. For example the SEIU levied fund raising requirements on local chapters to support Obama's campaigns. Unions are specifically exempted from campaign finance reform restrictions applied to PAC 's.

Which is why Nissan brought thousands of jobs to Mississippi.

Right, the workers the unions claim to represent are just children unable to distinguish propaganda from the happy servitude of serving union boses.
