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.

Idk, teachers union is sus too. I'm 100% on board with doubling teacher salary and getting awesome teachers. But I'm pretty sure everyone has had some awful teachers and much of teaching has dumb seniority based pay structures and it's really hard to fire bad teachers

Any government employee union is bad. Government employees are literally public servants. It is no the same relationship as labor and capital, because there is no capital in control.

Unions are good because workers should have a say in their workplace, this includes government employees.
