Why of course they aren't needed. Everyone sees the benevolence of big corporations towards their employees. Why just look at Walmart, Target, McDonalds, Chipotle and all the others. Throw in The big financial institutions, GM, GE and all the other generals. Then add their bought and paid for cronies in Washington called our congress. Farm subsidies, farmers killing wolves and bison on public lands to save their cows. Add a few special interest groups and low and behold, the American worker has no place in society anymore if he doesn't sign up for our governments plan for well being. Why, it's the best of all possible worlds. Pay nothing, disposable workers. Now I ask you, what could be better?
