Purportedly, a distant relative from the Socialist/Communist side of the family, Rudolph Schnaubelt threw the bomb that killed 7 policeman on May 4, 1886, that led to establishing Labor Day or Workers Day in several countries, including the Soviet Union’s “workers paradise.” This from the U.S. Department of Labor. There are a couple other questionable origins also promoted. Unfortunately a lot of college students have been misinformed by their professors as to how Capitalism is really responsible fror the dramatic increase in the standard of living around the world (not labor unions) since the Industrial Revolution.

Have “labor unions” outlived their usefulness?
Given their involvement in “politics” to maintain the status quo of socialism in Gooferment, my answer would be an unequvocal “yes”!
Certainly Gooferment Unions should be eliminated to end the corrupt cycle of: unions give money and free labor to politicians to help them get elected and then those same politicians “negotiate” high packages with those same unions. And of course, the Taxpayer gets shafted.
And, maybe even other unions because those unions “negotiate” with short-term thinking “management” to the detriment of the stock and bond holders. Perhaps “management” should only be compensated with long term bonds?
If that cycle is not broken, all is lost.
