Unions operate outside of the system of checks and balances. They are deeply corrupt to the core.

Unions should be used to unenforceable things. Negotiating for economically unfeasible wages and benefits and demanding jobs stay in the US, how can they even take their own rhetoric seriously?

NAFTA 2.0 is still not ratified by the US or Canada. Trump cannot enact trade treaties without Congress.

Wait... does this imply that Labour unions are the corrupt arms of big business? Not actually interested in protecting the interests of the common working man? It's almost like these institutions have been corrupt for the best part of half a century, and yet we still wonder how left-wing politics has slowly become so out of touch with real working people.
