You're wrong. Many people take whatever job they can get which is not much of a choice.<quoted text>NO one is 'forced' to work in a union shop. One's chosen field of employment is just that: CHOSEN. Be grateful the government doesn't assign you a trade at age eighteen, like China does. No one in America is FORCED to work anywhere. Ever. Where we apply for work is entirely up to us.
It's that whole 'personal responsibility' thing you're uncomfortable with, innit...?
BTW, there are quite a few people in America who were and are being forced to work, sometimes for no pay.
