In the final analysis, the proof is in the pudding. If the employees at Wal-Mart think they can get a better deal with a union, why haven't they organized? Could it be that they read about General Motors, Ford, Delphi, Delta, and so many other firms that have gone to the brink due, in large part, to labor issues with their unions? Could it be that they have heard about the arrests of union leaders at the Shaw’s Supermarkets in the Worcester, MA area as Local 1445 of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) attempts to enforce a collective bargaining agreement between the local union and the supermarket chain? Could it be also that unions, once powerful, have not adapted themselves to the changing labor force, have become archaic, and, except for the public sector have been rendered essentially unnecessary? The decline in their membership certainly suggests this and numbers don't lie. In the fight for the employees' hearts and minds, Wal-Mart typically wins, for it has come by its success fairly and has no intention of caving in to bullying tactics.
