But, if not for unionized workers "sucking money out of business", that money would be distributed to the businesses owners, who tend to be wealthier and generally invest a greater proportion of their income, taking it "out" of the economy.

By paying workers (even assuming you are correct that we are "overpaying them") those workers spend their salaries on goods and services, which through the multiplier effect, have an even greater impact on the economy.

I guess the real question between us is: Who is more likely to spend the money and stimulate the economy: The workers, or the owners?
