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.
And you still can't read since I said nothing about construction unions but unions in general which implies union shops. In fact I even narrowed it down to "if some places are union places that require membership." What I said is true. You strawman things because you can't refute what was actually posted. You have to restate a different claim and then take that down.
Your game is up. We know how you play it. Intellectually dishonest.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
