Instead of representing only their own voluntary members, unions take advantage of federal law that gives them the tyrannical power to force every worker to accept monopoly bargaining.*
– Steve King, Congressional representative of Ames, Iowa
* As a union member in Ames, she received regular raises, from 2 percent to almost 7 percent. She had good health insurance with no monthly premium. But that changed last year when Iowa’s Republican-controlled legislature passed a law gutting public-sector unions. Collective bargaining was severely restricted. Union workers got a 1 percent pay hike this year. And Isabel’s health care now costs $80 a month.
