Unions are important for ensuring employees aren't abused more than they already are when it comes to their work.

There is a time and a place for unions and the economy and working conditions will dictate if/when they are necessary

there should be no monetary currency system, but unions are meant to show the state of those working for a company, and should be important in making changes.

Their formation was founded on good principles, but has devolved since its inception.

Unions are not universally good or bad. They are essential for curbing work power imbalance and fixing some major issues in employee health, but they can also be a major stumbling block in efficiency and progress.

I believe in a form of syndicalism called corporatism. The short of it is "the organization of society by corporate groups, such as agricultural, labor, military, scientific, or guild associations, on the basis of their common interests". The specific branch of corporatism I subscribe to is neo-corporatism, which "favored economic tripartism, which involved strong labour unions, employers' associations and governments that cooperated as "social partners" to negotiate and manage a national economy." So, in short, I believe unions help the economy, but they should be non-partisan and take part in tripartate negotiations with the employer and state.

They could either hurt or help depending on their stance and how aggressive they are with it.

@9P48GWXDemocrat from Nebraska answered…3mos

Some unions are absolutely necessary in areas such as manufacturing or warehouse settings. Unions in professional settings can actually damage the credibility of the job. Such as the teachers union.

@9P2ZP7XWomen’s Equality from Illinois answered…3mos

Hurt, but I support labor unions because it protect my benefit.

@9NRP69WVeteran from Virginia answered…3mos

Help but there should never be a mandatory requirement to join in order to work.

@9NNNZ9CGreen from Nebraska answered…3mos

They hurt the economy, that is not a bad thing. Capitalism is ruthless and built on the necks of workers. I will always support unions.

@9NN3N95Constitution from Michigan answered…3mos

In certain case Unions help workers, in others they hurt. The best way to ensure that they are doing they're jobs is to make Union membership optional.

I do not know enough about their effects on economy, so I do not have an opinion on that yet. I think that their lobbying activities are not good, but I do think that they do help individuals in their industries.

Unions created safe working environments and livable wages. However, they have become too political. Pros and cons of unions.

 @patrickwynneLibertarian from Texas answered…3mos

There are instances where they help, and others where they have hurt. Strong labor unions are necessary to ensure powerful organization do not suppress worker's rights.
