Should businesses be allowed to ban unions and union workers from their store(s)?

When I take the risk to start a business I can ban any union or union's worker from soliciting my employees. I cannot ban a union or union worker from entering though, only soliciting on my property during work hours.

I think he means workers, right? The confusion may skew the results.

As customers no. As demonstrators or trying to meet with employees to campaign for union membership, yes.

Like say a union prevents workers from organizing into a union or preventing them from joining one

I think businesses should be able to ban, or not serve, anyone they choose not to serve. Gay Christian black white liberal conservative- any of them. I never think it's a wise decision to do so, but I think they should be allowed to do it.

No, but they should have no obligation to meet, negotiate, or make contracts with them either. The words "on strike" should be treated as synonymous with "I quit".

I don't think so. That eliminates the free choice of whether or not to be in a union. I don't agree with workers being forced either into or out of them. Without collective bargaining, employers are free to mistreat employees without consequences.

Privately owned establishments should have the right to hire/fire employees freely based on any criteria.

So if an owner doesn't like a persons skin color, or his religion, or is just in a grumpy mood, they should be allowed to fire you and too bad you're screwed?

California protects the rights of the employees. It takes a certain amount of written documentation to proceed legally otherwise lawsuits are certain unless the employees are illegals.

While it depends exactly on the contract created at the hiring of the employee, generally, the answer is yes. While I find it despicable that an employer would fire someone for their religion, skin color, etc, if we wish to remain a free...

society, we can't force employers to run their business a certain way.

Wouldn't you say part of being a free society is nit allowing owners to fire workers for any reason, especially not discriminatory reasons?

They shouldn't be prohibited from doing so.
