I'll give you a hint: I was disabled, and literally did not have enough money for food. I went to the government for help. I was rejected, while other people (of a more politically favored class) that were not disabled at all were given money.
Eventually, I found a job were I could work somewhat. I then had to pay taxes to support those favored by the government, when I could barely afford rent.
You trust the government, because you have never been abused by it. You're probably also pretty good at getting others to give you what you want by talking.
I sucked at that, though I got better. The government, and unions, help a certain class of people by harming everyone else.
To me, you union/government guys guys are simply either inexperienced or insane. The path you chose has never worked. It has been proven mathematically impossible via simple, well understood economics. Yet you persist in believing that if only we gave all the power to "person X", whether a union boss, a President, or a scientist, everything would be better.
Anything that does not increase production hurts the majority, and only benefits a more powerful minority.
