Why are people so ignorant about Union rights?

The person (blue) in this argument with me is not a right wing person at all, and yet still is convinced that the Unions are the bad guys in this, not realizing why they're still necessary, apparently. I'm actually shocked he never used the "union thug" line:

In hindsight: Where I failed is to call him on a major error... he said: "...why should I pay for them to get a deal like that?" Because in fact he doesn't. The only people who pay unions are those who are in them. The only people who pay for their benefits are those who are also unionized. He's not paying anything. And because he doesn't pay for a union, he doesn't get the benefits.

End of discussion.
