The 'disproportionate amount of power' argument comes out a lot in these discussions about unions. It sounds like a good argument but I think it ignores the fact that the labor market itself is a pretty powerful force that works against corporate interests.

Intertwining employment with health insurance has been a big mistake in my mind. Not only does it distort the insurance market in many ways, but it also radically affects job mobility as it artificially binds employment and heath care decisions creating constraints that wouldn't otherwise exist.
