Unions ceased to be necessary by Legislation.

The Fair Labor Standards Act 1938 is a federal statute of the United States. The FLSA introduced a maximum 44-hour seven-day workweek, established a national minimum wage, guaranteed 'time-and-a-half' for overtime in certain jobs, and prohibited most employment of minors in "oppressive child labor," a term that is defined in the statute
Federally Mandated Minimum Wage was enacted.

The Occupational Safety and Health Act is the primary federal law which governs occupational health and safety in the private sector and federal government in the United States. It was enacted by Congress in 1970 and was signed by President Richard Nixon on December 29, 1970. Its main goal is to ensure that employers provide employees with an environment free from recognized hazards, such as exposure to toxic chemicals, excessive noise levels, mechanical dangers, heat or cold stress, or unsanitary conditions.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), established January 1, 2000, regulates the trucking industry in the United States

Unions served an important purpose in the implementation of many of these laws by creating a powerful lobby. But when the Federal Government created legislation to safeguard workers and workers right, the unions became highly unnecessary.

This may sound harsh, but there are some jobs that do not require the excessive pay for the work being done.

Seriously, does someone that bakes snack cakes for a living truly deserve to be paid $16.00 or more per hour. Is is difficult? Is it hard labor? Is it a critical need job?

The only purpose unions supply besides lininng the pockets of their leadership is to create Collective Bargaining units to threaten a strike unless concessions are given.
