    Does Labor Have a Future? - By Harry Kelber (First in a series of six articles)
    In the past ten years, the nation’s top labor leaders have failed to come up with winning solutions. They’ve tried just about everything to coax non-union workers to see the light. Unions have been pouring still more money into organizing and given it their highest priority in the hope that it will solve this vexing problem. They’ve been holding strategy sessions, workshops and meetings with their best organizers to find a magic formula that will enable them to grow. But nothing seems to work. (Maybe they should offer non-union workers a signing bonus to induce them to join.)
