I dont expect labour union bosses to understand that, being the ignorant brutes that they are.
More and more manufacturing being transferred overseas with a resultant service industry that is at best marginal and quickly redundant. Unions are left with fewer members all the while the population becomes poorer.
The result more and more become self employed earning even less.
No manufacturing results in societal poverty.Raise you wages make yourself noncompetitive and see how it flies.
