Unions or Mobsters?

Because based on this article, I'd say mobsters. As a citizen of this Nation, you have the right to pursue any career you feel you are qualified for. You do not have a "right" to a job. You have the freedom to obtain one. You do have the right to be free from undue pressure to join any organization, no matter how benevolent (or malevolent) they may seem. Unions are the bullies of the workplace, especially in the service industry and government employees and from the tactics described in this article, they are borderline psychotic.

NLRB rejects Hyatt’s request for unionization election as labor union pressures employees
It’s rare for a company with workers targeted by Big Labor for unionization to ask the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) for a unionization election. That initiative is usually taken by the unions themselves.
But that’s exactly what hotel chain Hyatt did at four of its locations after Unite Here organizers allegedly badgered its workers by showing up at their houses and following them to places like supermarkets in order to pressure them to unionize. Unite Here is a labor union that represents various service industry workers, including workers employed at hotels, airports, food service providers and casinos. Unite Here doesn’t want to hold secret-ballot elections, though, despite leading numerous activities Hyatt contends are tantamount to organizing efforts.
