They can create an "us versus them" culture within companies and organizations, instead of putting everyone on the same teamThey can create a culture of entitlementThey can restrict flexibility and hurt competitivenessThey can drive companies to move jobs out of the country, to places where there are no unionsThey can become career employment for their leaders, who pay themselves well (much better than the workers they're representing)They can maintain ludicrous compensation and benefit levels for jobs based purely on seniorityThey can force companies to treat all union employees equally, regardless of the relative skill and value of particular employees--thus reducing incentives for people to do a great jobEtc. But unions came into being because company owners weren't sharing enough of their companies' wealth with the rank-and-file employees who helped produce it. But now the pendulum has swung too far the other way.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Passing a background check, paying taxes, paying a penalty, learning English, and then going to the back of the line behind all of the folks who are trying to come here legally. REPRESENTATIVE MARCO RUBIO: You have to stand in line. REPRESENTATIVE BOB MENENDEZ: And then we will have a process where they'll have to wait at the end of the line. MITT ROMNEY: And then ultimately you've got to go home, apply for permanent residency here or citizenship if you want to try and do that. No.
