Unions Are The Worst

One of the weirdest things, if one which doesn't get a lot of coverage, is how hostile even print newspapers have been towards organized labor over the years. The obvious reason it's weird is that newspaper journalism was pretty unionized. Any powerful institution can be flawed, and unions can be powerful locally even as they've lost much clout nationally, but generally it's a clear case of siding with the powerful over the increasingly powerless, and then running to the newspaper guild when management makes you cry.
