Collective Bargaining

“Collective bargaining is not what its name indicates. In fact, it means exactly the opposite of what you’d guess. Collective bargaining refers to the obligation of an employer to recognize the elected representatives of a group of workers and his further obligation to negotiate with those representatives. This last part is what makes ‘collective bargaining’ extortion.

Under collective bargaining laws, employers have to recognize an elected union and have to negotiate with them.

Imagine if the tables were turned and employers had the right to ’employer bargaining’, under which the employer could demand whatever pay reductions or workday increases he wanted, the employees had to negotiate with the employer, and employees couldn’t quit!

Such an arrangement could only be classified as slavery.

The right to terminate the employer-employee relationship is a fundamental right of both employer and employee. Employment should be mutually beneficial to employer and employee and open to termination by either when it becomes non-beneficial (limited of course by any voluntary contractual agreements).”

    People already have to take all the shit their employer gives them in most cases, and while they can quit, moving to the next big box store isn’t going to be much of a change.

    Well you can thank progressive policies for keeping people without college degrees out of really gainful employment.

    Many employers used to give tests to determine learning ability, intelligence, etc. but now, the fact that some demographics don’t perform well on these tests, and the lawsuits that follow, have led many employers to put college degrees in place of previous testing, that in all likelihood helped pick the better candidates.

    That’s why many employers just look for a BA or BS, doesn’t matter what its in, because it doesn’t make any difference that isn’t what they care about.

    It comes down to if you own a business and you don’t want to do business with a union, you shouldn’t have to.
