What do you think of this quote, and what do you think it means?

"I don't believe in a minimum wage

I believe in free markets

I also believe in strong unions

The rich get to pool the power of their money

The workers get to pool the power of their labor"

    Sounds like a thinly veiled communist, who is not trying to sound like one.

    As far as the meaning, he's just discussing the power of each group; he

    acts like they directly opposed to one another, the worker vs the employer.

    To sum it up, he is saying, don't try and control free markets, let them be free,

    but don't try and control the power of the workers either.

    I think he believes that wages should be set by individual business with the input/oversight of the union---that it would be an even and equal battle--but sorry, some unions are stronger than others and some businesses are GREEDY and inflexible-so no-I don't agree with this.

    But the morbidly rich will destroy the unions. If unions were mandatory I would be OK with it.

    I think it is one person's opinion. I agree with some but not all of it.
