Unions. A fair idea or abject communism?

Listen. I'll keep this short. Many industries have an order in which you must climb via promotion. (worker, supervisor, management etc.) Management of the industry in general should be for administrative staff alone, many of whom have climbed up the ranks. Why should the lowly worker, with no experience in running a business, or gone through the trouble of getting that promotion, have the same right to make crucial decisions as say, a man who has actually worked to get to get to his position?

I hope that many people reply to this this thread, and for any more info on my views, or questions, please send me a telegram. (microkovljerakistan)

In most business situations the role of the management is to improve the profits of the business. This is often at odds with what is best for the general workers. Unions allow the workers to have an say in matters that affect them directly, such as pay or whorking conditions. It is rare for a union to have a say in business matters that do not affect the general staff directly e.g. pricing of goods/services.
