Comedian and host John Oliver hilariously exposed union-busting employers on Sunday’s edition of his show, “Last Week Tonight.”

“If you have never been through a union organizing drive yourself, you might assume that a union vote is a completely free and fair election,” Oliver said. “That is an illusion fed by executives like [former Amazon CEO] Jeff Bezos, America’s least inspiring astronaut.” He methodically explained how employers like Amazon and many other companies get away with union-busting, and how America’s labor laws need to be fixed.
