Help, in theory but have recently become corrupt and should have their powers limited

@ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...8yrs

Hurt, I support some private unions but am strongly against public unions

Theoretically they're supposed to help us. But they are corrupt right now, in my opinion. Other than that, I am not well-versed in this subject to give a real opinion on unions.

@93BDMP6 from California answered…8mos

My opinion doesn't matter, because the government should not pass laws favoring one side or the other

@939NWVG from Massachusetts answered…8mos

Help, but they exist to protect workers. Their impact on the economy is irrelevant.

 @8XD6BY6 from Nevada answered…10mos

Hurt, but I do think that workers should have the right to unionize

@8ZL6BBD from Colorado answered…11mos

Help, but they should only serve their roles and ensure a healthy work environment.

@8Z48T24 from Georgia answered…11mos

I believe the government should stay out of unions, private unions are helpful

@748XY8M answered…12mos

Their purpose is for the advancement of workers' rights, and for that I support them. Whether or not they help or hurt the economy is irrelevant

@8Z4TXWG from Wisconsin answered…12mos

depends on the people in the union and who is running it, some are good some are not.

Depends on the situation, currently labor unions I beleive have gained too much power against employers, but in times of economic slowdowns/depressions, they should come to the defense of their members.

@8Y96CVP from Michigan answered…1yr

I believe they do hurt and take a toll in the economy, but their ability to make political donations should be banned.

@8XQCD4Q from Washington answered…1yr

Regardless, unions protect and increase the liberty of their members, who are the working class backbone of this nation.

@8XNT9ZQ from Florida answered…1yr

100 years ago labor unions helped many workers, now the unions are robbing their members of wages, the administrators get rich, and almost nothing is done to benefit the workers but they support corrupt politicians.

I don't believe it affects the economy, but it does help ensure workers have proper pay, benefits, and rights.

They can help, however ban ability to make political donations and limit their powers.

@8VC7WDN from North Carolina answered…1yr

Help. Ban ability to make political donations and limit their powers.

The current combative labor unionism and out-of-control laissez faire capitalism both hurt the economy. A more fruitful model like that of Germany, where labor unions have a seat at the corporate board, will be better.

You have the right to unionize, but unions should really have less power.

Hurt the economy but in more cases than not they protect the worker.

 @8P6PWZP from Louisiana answered…2yrs

Help, and their powers should be strengthened at a progressive rate.

 @8QYZ4SB from Minnesota answered…2yrs

Not necessarily the economy overall, but they ensure benefits and fair wages for the working class.

@8QDSNZY from New York answered…2yrs

Help, However some such as the Police Union have recently become corrupt and should have their powers limited
