questions

1. Could unions and/or guilds be more effective organizing around changing federal legislation rather than organizing workers?

2. When Brenner discusses guilds and union history, in relation to the technology sector, he seems to imply that individuals are becoming increasingly responsible for self-promotion and justification of their importance in the workplace. Is this unique to the technology sector and why?

3. How can the rights of low-waged workers be established when consumers are unwilling to sacrifice individual access to low priced products, even when it means supporting corporations like Wal-Mart, also the largest private employer in America?
