Barry, My Liege :
Although possibly tarnished as a reputed canard, but it is true nonetheless that laws which remain unenforced do not change behavior.
If unions which organize workers and then press for higher wages are critical to our Economic National Security, then it follows that the laws which permit organizing should be enforced.
Those laws are not enforced.
We will fail to create an economic recovery until we enforce those laws.
Here are some facts from a recent survey : 'In 91% of the union recognition petitions filed with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in the survey, a majority of workers indicated they wanted a union before the process began. In several cases, workers demonstrated more than 80% support. However, unions were victorious in only 31% of the campaign in which they filed a petition.'

My Liege, this situation is both unacceptable and easily fixable.
We pray you for relief.
Your faithful servant.
