Why aren't liberals pro-choice when it comes to workers and companies who don't want to associate with labor unions?

    Because unions are required by law to represent all people in that shop. With "right to work laws" people can opt out of paying "agency fees" which are fees which a union charges to defray the costs of representing you. (It's distinct from dues which are also used to fund things like political activism on behalf of the union. No one can be forced to join a union as a condition of employment). If people can get the benefits of union representation without paying the costs then they're likely to take that option, which weakens the union.

    Because that was not on the list of talking points.

    A lot of liberals don't worry about right to work laws. They just oppose the underlying deception behind the idea, which is creating more power for corporations.

    I would support a corrupt labor union over a corrupt corporation any day.

    The Gilded Age was a pretty loony time.

    No company or boss has to join a union.

    Why aren't conservatives pro-life when it comes to giving people health insurance so they can afford treatment to not suffer and possibly die?

      Yeah, and a lot of them are medical bills. Look it up if you don't believe me.

    Because of the free ride non-union employees get. You take a job where I work, but refuse to pay union dues. My union negotiates a new contract and a 15% raise. You get the raise that my union dues made happen.
