Not him, but in Ausfailia that's PRECISELY what they do.
It's hilarious - our Unions started the white Australia policy, a racist policy specifically designed to reduce the number of non-unionized workers in the country.
...And two years ago they spent millions to promote the use of fucking McDonald's and KFC being allowed to fly in Asians to work below minimum wage because of "staff shortages" (when it was shown they were simply not hiring locals, it was explained that there was a shortage of staff willing to work for less than the legal minimum wage kek).
I don't know about the U.S., but all these changes started in the early 80's as the Labor parties and unions became dominated by the children of working class unionists who had been the first wave of working class kids to get university educations in the 1960's.
There was an interesting article by one of these kids (who went on to be one of Australia's most respected literary authors) only a few days ago where he said that his entire generation had "pulled the ladder up behind them" - their parents had fought long and hard to get workers rights and free (or extremely cheap education) and then his generation had promptly turned around and embraced """""liberalism""""" and done away with all of that, because we're all "individuals" now.
