How often do you hear righties whine about any industry association? None. I guess unions are good for the wealthy but bad for your average man.

Could you provide some specific examples?

I personally believe an individual should have a choice to join or not join a union.

Moreover, the new law in MIchigan will force unions to actually serve their members instead of taking them for granted because they hold their jobs hostage.

Are conservatives forcing corporations to do this against their will?

What, pray tell, is a union for "wealthy people"?

Not a union for wealthy people, a union by wealthy people. There are dozens, probably hundreds. Look at all the corporation associations.

/thread fail.

A Union is an organization that you are forced to join and contribute to in order to work at a company.

An Industry Association is an organization that businesses join voluntarily in order to promote their business or improve their knowledge of their industry.

Hopefully that clears up the issue for you.

An industry association is a union, look up the definition of union. Not one person is forced to work at a company, you choose to work at a certain company.

Man, righties really need dictionaries.
