You haven't learned anything from the fall of Europe. Of the 100 largest companies in Europe, none is less than 40 years old. Wanna know why? Because unions make it unprofitable to become a big company. At some point regulatory costs are too high. In the short term, unions look like a good idea. In the long term, they end up ruining the whole country.

>Of the 100 largest companies in Europe, none is less than 40 years old

Where did you hear this, or did you just pick it out your arse? Shell, BP and Volkswagen are the biggest companies in Europe and all are well over 40 years old.

Started working at UPS a few months ago and shit is hilarious. You basically have “hourly’s” which are Teamsters union people and all supervisors are UPS. The hourly’s can call out supervisors for all sorts of shit and get money for it. And the aupervisors are the boss but they are limp dicked cause you cant really fire anyone unless they do something REALLY REALLY unsafe or straight up illegal. So no one really has power over the other and as a result work culture is fucked in the ass. Union workers don’t do shit and supervisors cant really supervise

>Overtime is strictly capped. Can't work more even if I want to
>The union has attracted the most corrupt, nepotistic pieces of shit I've ever seen. Everyone who is higher on the ladder than base level has a stick up their ass or a chip on their shoulder
>Couldn't even protect my rights when I needed it the most. Vax mandates threatened my job and the union was in full agreement. I had to band together with coworkers on my own accord and upper management agreed to let us work if we kept it quiet because they couldn't afford to lose us.
