    Labor Unions around the world, corrupt though some may be, are workers united. They pay fees and VOTE when their rights are trodden on. They strike in solidarity. In Israel we have no labor unions. We have an economic dictatorship. Our workers have NO VOICE! No vote. No right to decide on a strike. It is an establishment with no solidarity to the public it purports to represent. So any demand for solidarity with it is foolish. As to the airport question:- grow up! Air travel is a critical proponent of our modern world - not a "holiday makers tool". Our airports are also places of import, export, critical courier communication, diplomacy, etc. Flyers are also medical patients, international students, the bereaved, family members facing emergencies and so many others. Cutting all of this off without giving the workers the right to VOTE for or against or to participate in negotiations - is wrong. It's completely wrong.
