, actually. we all know this. also the big expansion of low wage jobs in china. so the unfettered, you know, trade with china has actually -- this import penetration causes low wages too. we went along with it. and many chinese employers are really just part of american companies. so it is not really chinese workers, it is american workers using those global supply chains. >> that's such a great distinction. well, like we were just talking about, since workers face such barriers to unionizing, we are seeing movements like our walmart that richard is involved with taking to the streets and trying to figure out with labor laws as they are how they can still have a voice. and i know you work with a lot of these types of organizations. what sort of models have been effective in providing workers with a voice in the absence of a union? >> we have seen union density decline from 35% in the 1950s, the amazing history lesson you just gave, to less than 30% today. we had to figure out -- workers had to figure out a way to organize. it is important to know that you don't have to be in a union to

supervision which is all in the deal, what do you go back to? the fact is china and russia will defect, there will be no more sanctions against iran, iran will resume what it had been doing until this diplomacy of the president began. that is to say, increasing the number of centrifuges, moving steadily closer to a bomb, and no president of the united states i think, would be prepared to accept a nuclear-armed islamic republic. at that point the question becomes, what do you do? i think military action probably at that point becomes the only way. now, prime minister netanyahu in the webcast to major jewish organizations said he found the president's contention that this would lead to war if the deal failed. outrageous. and i think this was typical of the way that the prime minister of israel has managed, whether intentionally or not, i think probably not, but he has offended president obama. he has very rarely said thank you for all the support that this president continues to give israel and will, i'm sure, do so until the end of his term despite these differences, and it's ver
