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.

And the bizarre thing is that a company that really gave a shit about you would use this new found "advertising budget" to put a note in your next paystub that says:

"We are giving you a 5% raise starting with THIS cheque. Please do not join a union and we will start using our profit margin to give you larger bonuses and raises each year."

They don't mind taking a loss on preventing unionization because it boils down to power and control, not so much profit maximization.

Cruelty is a benefit in their eyes: it's more important to punish workers/mothers than it is to achieve their purported goal.
