    Are unions relevant in today’s America? If you look at the current political views many would say no, but if you study the history of the union movement it is parent that only a union can best represent the workers. In a time when there is a lot of unemployed we are seeing employers taking away the benefits workers fought for slowly trying to return us back to a time when all the rights where with the company and the employee was just lucky to get what he/she got.
    Do you think the unions time has come and gone or the current economic conditions will help renew the need for unions (or at least force some of these companies to view their employees as people and not numbers)?
