  •  that still doesn't cut it. (none)
    If not, why do you advocate this for the workplace?  Should a worker who enjoys all of the benefits of collective bargaining be free ride on the backs of their co-workers?

    You've still failed to explain why I should be forced to join a union against my will.  If you want everyone to be on a level playing field ("enjoying all the benefits" without paying the piper), shouldn't the artificial mechanism be removed in the first place?  Are you sure that's the direction you want to take your argument?

    •  so I could understand where (none)
      you are coming from. Twice in this thread Eugene has said that noone can be forced to join a union. However, in some states, those that choose not to join the union are still required to pay dues as they are still benefitting from all that the union does. Is your opposition to this based on some type of free market ideology? And, are you opposed to the concept of labor unions in general?
