Regarding the union article: the Time's reporter certainly has a interesting worldview. I, for one, don't see evidence of "the nation's rightward shift". And quoting the VP for "labor policy" at the US Chamber of Commerce on a labor story?

The biggest challenge organized labor faces in this country is combatting the strong opinions of people who have absolutely no knowledge of them, yet still regard themselves as experts. The second biggest challenge is overcoming the outdated worldview of most of their leaders, and a certain percentage of their rank-and-file. That's why I don't regard this news story as a signal of "continued decline" - as much as it is a desperately needed change of perspective. Unions need to realize that it's not the 70's anymore, but that there is still very much a need for collective bargaining, safe working conditions, and economic parity in the workforce.
