Democracies need collective bargaining

See this article. With collective bargaining democracy flourishes. Without it they become oligarchies. The evidence is clear. Since 1983 US participation in unions has gone from 20 to 11 percent. In that time worker productivity and GDP have gone up by 80%, yet wages have stagnated. Obviously there is a direct relationship between the oligarchy's agenda to destroy unions and these stats. The greedy bastards do not want to share the wealth. And without collective bargaining employees have no leverage whatsoever to negotiate better wages. Democracy requires it, oligarchy denies it. The question is, do we the people want a democracy?
