    All over the West, any correlation between increases in company profits and wages has broken down at the same time as involvement in organised labor, which has NOT been either co-incidence or unintended.

    I will say, Unions are not always a good thing.

    In Australia, the unions are horrifically, illegally corrupt. They regularly draft up “Agreements” that hurt the workers that support them by marketing it as a good thing.

    In 2018, the SDA union in Australia voted to cut penalty rates, reduce late night pay bonuses separate from penalty rates and give employers more opportunities to put casual workers on “probationary part time hours” which lets them pay them less, without providing them with the security and bonuses of normal part time permanent work.

    The initial draft was ripped up after less than a dozen people attempted to start a class action against the SDA, but the replacement was almost as bad as the original and the squeaky wheels have been silenced.

    It’s all well and good to say organized labour helps everyone, but it’s just as prone to corruption as everything else and when unions are run as “For Profit” organizations in and of themselves, it tends to make everything worse for everybody. Except the union. And the employers, and the legislative powers and… well okay it just makes everything worse for the workers for whome the unions were designed to help in the first place.
