For the record, I am not loyal to any party. Each election I review each party's policies and go with my gut. I think those who blindly follow a party have helped ruin this once fine country.
We cannot muscle companies around just because we can.
100% agree with you. However I believe unions have a role to play in society. Historically they have been critical to balancing the power between powerful industrialists and the lowly worker. (BTW: why is it that those who most adore free markets object to workers freely uniting?)
Also, it's worth noting that the real world isn't digital, it's analogue. And this is where politics resides. Should workers have more rights? Or fewer? There's no universal answer, just opinion.
FYI: Wrong, I ain't no whipper-snapper.
