Calling B.S. Workers have a say in how their unions are run, and without a union, workers have ZERO voice in their workplaces. All wealth is created by workers, how much of their own created wealth they are allowed to retain is dependent on how well organized they are. The plutocracy hates unions because of these simple facts.

All wealth is created by workers,

This is less true nowadays (automation), but still true for the majority of wealth I think. Until almost everything is automated and UBI is a thing, unions are necessary minor evil to prevent a really, really great evil.
