Why Are There Teacher Unions?

Teacher unions are a paradox to me.

Teacher unions  support big government political candidates.

Yet, the real reason I believe teacher unions exist is because they don’t trust big government, as their employer, to treat them fairly, so they form unions to protect them from the very same big government they support.

Or, maybe I have it wrong.

Maybe teachers fear free market forces and distrust government as their employers and the unions insulate them from both.
