Unions work fantastically in certain industries


They are still extremely relevant and important in film and TV production, screen and stage actors, professional athletes, construction trades, mining, and other fields where new entering workers are historically ruthlessly exploited or where employers have a history of setting up dozens of corporate entities to shield liability and hide financials. Better state regulation is slowing making such unions less necessary, but until the state has the wherewithal and motivation to enforce fair treatment of workers, a union is often the best line of defense (and in states where said industries have 'captured' their regulators, the only line of defense).

I do not necessarily think unions are necessary in the public sector (or justified), but to say they don't make sense anymore is too categorical a statement.
