A union would require that programmers be paid for their time and paid for overtime, no more 30 day death marches and 70 hour weeks. A union would require objective disciplinary procedures so you can't get railroaded just because the boss's knobgobbler does not like you.

decompression speed is unimportant for general purpose compression, it is either adequate or not adequate, if deompression speed is not adequate it does not matter how well it scores on other metrics it is unusable for your use case, if decompression speed id adequate, it really does not matter if it's just barely adequate or insanely fast.

if the government really wants what is on your disk, they will put you in a small cage until you give up the keys, if they REALLY want it you will take a trip to an officially nonexistant location and find out what successively higher and higher voltage across your genitals feels like until you give up the key, or die.

Your own mileage may vary.
