Just wanted to pop in and say that this:

Show spoiler

But they have become somewhat redundant given things like OSHA/EEOC/etc.. and a whole host of other govt regs/laws that are supposed to protect workers.
And where did we get these regulations? Through unions! I have no doubt that if these anti-union bills get passed, we'll start seeing even more encroachment on these laws that are used to justify saying unions are redundant.
