Personally I wouldn't count being a union leader as "business experience". Incidentally was Reagan the only union leader to become US president ; that would be rather ironic...

I think there could be a better case for business experience at the state and especially local level; mayors do run cities in a way at least somewhat analogous to businesses.

Being President is vastly different and involves a whole range of issues like national security, macroeconomics, financial regulation, where business experience is of relatively little use and could in fact be a source of bias.
