Forced membership is just control.
Again, you guys know nothing about construction unions in MO. It is straight up laughable.
Union construction workers are not hired permanently by companies. Union construction workers are employed through the Union office.
When a construction company in MO bids on a wins a project, if they decide to go union, then they call up the Union office. They say, "we need x number of labor's" The union office then notifies it's current unemployed members.
Therefore, a construction company cannot be controlled by union workers. A company decides on each project whether to hire union. Union offices are completely independent from Construction companies.
Also, what is it that you conservatives say about low paying jobs? If you don't like the job, just more to a different one. Its a free country. You can't force someone to join a union because you can just find another job.
