If unions are people then so are corporations
If unions are people then so are corporations.
Who makes up unions? Who makes up corporations? If there were no union members then unions wouldn't exist. If there weren't any owners, investors, inventors, shareholders, businessmen, and employees then there wouldn't be any corporations. From Wikipedia: "The word 'corporation' derives from corpus, the Latin word for body, or a 'body of people'." To perpetuate the meme that corporations aren't people is absurd. If corporations are not people what are they? Have unions survived longer than some union members over the years? Yes. The same type of scenario happens with corporations so unions shouldn't be given preferential treatment with regards to taxes as progressives promote. When companies like GE end up paying no federal taxes something is wrong in my opinion. For this reason I do think that there are loopholes that need to be closed.
