Many people are out in the winter cold across the US today, seizing this "teachable moment" of the Wisconsin drama to make that point in public gatherings. I'm not doing that, but for what it's worth, I pledge to write a fanfiction with historical flashback content on what unions have done for us all and why collective bargaining rights matter. I don't commit to a deadline, but I'll aim for within 2011. The story might be either Forever Knight or Highlander, whichever yields the best story idea.
If you'd be interested in reading such a story by me, please feel free to let me know what story elements you might like to see! If you'd like to chat calmly, reasonably and relatively briefly about how the existence of collective bargaining rights does or does not benefit the entire society, we can do that, too. ;-)
