    As union memberships shrinks, then unions will be less influencial and less important to the democratic party.

    And as the democratic party abandons union issues to better curry favor and campaign contributions from the wealthy and corporate interests, union memebers lose interest in the democratic party.

    Recent changes in the American economy and in labor laws could well do away with unions all together.  The democratic party is unlikely to go away: the democratic party can always get money by prostituting itself to another rich person.  

    Unions only work because of the collective efforts of its members: unions cannot abandon its members the way the democratic party has abandoned its middle class voters.
