I assume there was some media outrage when Ronald Reagan fired the air traffic controllers, although I don't recall for sure.

You assume wrong. There was widespread praise when he fired the air traffic controllers for an *illegal* strike.

Pretty much. The attitude of the country towards unions then was about where it should be -- necessary evils, generally to be avoided as much as possible.

Amazing what 30 years of lying public education does to a populace, ain't it?
