Funny thing about the 'if it weren't for unions we'd still be working seven days a week' line, as there's a certain locally started grocery store chain that's unionized -- and because of that requires every single employee there to work Sundays, no exceptions. Not even clergy with a part-time job there (I'm not making that up, that situation actually happened).

It seems to me many of the fields where unions would be useful (try getting a fair apprenticeship or safe working conditions in some trades, for one) are the ones its most difficult to organize... in some others, they've far outlived their original purpose.
