Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Unions only really work in industrialised and centralised economies, where the same people work together, talk to each other, sometimes live near each other, and deal personally with the same management.

We need something like unions for the mobile, telecommuting, 'freelance', contractor temp economy that most workers live in now - including many who are supposedly middle class.
