(1) Because of the activities of labor unions affecting the economic conditions of the country and the state, entering as they do into practically every business and industrial enterprise, it is the sense of the Legislature that such organizations affect the public interest and are charged with a public use.  The working person, unionist or nonunionist, must be protected.  The right to work is the right to live.
