    ways that unions could become more important and grow their support, There is still a lot of money controlled by unions, what if a portion of funds were used to guarantee employee buyouts of factories and businesses? Start small, support employee owned businesses and get more and more people in a position of having been helped by unions to have jobs that can't be outsourced. Not the traditional method of union organising, but the more people who have jobs that can't be moved overseas, the more of a support base the unions would have. It would grow support faster than fighting on the philosophical level with the entrenched sentiment and propaganda against unions. People get safe, stable, good paying jobs via union support, they're going to be on our side.
