    The amount of money behind disinformation campaigns to smear unions is a difficult enough hurdle to overcome. But in addition, anti-union laws that make it extremely hard to get an organizing drive a fair chance.

    The deck is stacked in the bosses favor. The Wagner Act of 1935 was a recognition of the basic human right to organize. In 1947 the Shaft Heartlessly Taft Hartley Act shredded the workers' rights recognized by the Wagner Act (aka NLRA).

    Since then, the power of Money to buy law has caused the decline.
