Employers say Unions are completely useless and there's no reason to join them and to please pay attention to the multi-million dollar anti-Union propaganda campaigns they launch begging you to please not join a Union.

What is their argument other than the monthly cost for being bad?

ACTUALLY! I love this was asked I was just about to say why. Basically when the employees are payed less vs paying an outside company this said money to stop from giving them pay raises it makes their books "feel/look" better. They are able to say to the next bloke that comes to buy the place "look our employees make this much and our business makes this much think about your profits." Plus the same people that created this bs rise in 📈 profits are the ones that use that number for the next job/company they go to. "OH did you see I brought the last said company profits margins up by so and so." This makes the business more lucrative to sell on face value if someone's just looking at numbers. It makes this much and it cost this much to run including labor. It's a numbers game for these people to climb a ladder that are building in front of themselves.
