    China already has unions, they're just tied to the state. If you mean that an independent working class movement is brewing in China, you are correct.

    The US still needs them, now more than ever.

    As the standard of living rises in China and workers demand better wage, a lot of the corporations will outsource to even poorer countries. Though, eventually they run into the problem of running out of countries to outsource too.

    The U.S. still needs them. As Union membership has gone down the standard of living for the working class has declined as well.

    I simply disagree... In most proffession's the private worker's get more pay then union worker's do, hence why they are dying out in the private sector. Unions are inefficient and no longer serve the purpose they used to, U.S. laws and regulation have already replaced the purpose of them.

    Latin America might be harder for them to work with, at least some countries. I could see Venezuela and Bolivia giving them trouble. Though, I'll admit my knowledge of that area is limited, so there are likely many other countries willing to accept their trade agreements.
