Labor unions, technology and Silicon Valley

TechCrunch makes the argument that what makes unions and Silicon Valley incompatible to dislike technology is not only the fear that technology will replace them but it will affect their jobs. Of course, I'd observe that job "protection" only makes them less sustainable and those being "protected" subject to greater loss when that protection finally goes away.

These attitudes help to explain why unions have lost so much ground over the past several decades.
