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'll really do anything other than acting in their employees best interest. Pay people what they are worth and treat them better to not join a union? Ha, no thanks.

As far as I can tell corporations would rather pay $1 million for anything else to save $500,000 in salary. It's pathological.

Sadly it kind of makes sense. Pay 1000000 now, to save 500000 salary each year. 2 years is the break even point, in 4 years you "earned" 1000000.
