We have by far the most number of trade unions as compared to any other country in the world. This is another reason for so many strikes taking place in our country for some or the other reason being called for by some trade union of national or regional presence. These strikes lead to huge loss of work, money & causes trouble to the public!!

Employment laws are quite stringent in various American and European countries and hence trade unions seldom can increase their clouts.. but here In india employement laws are made but not adhered to or imposed upon and it gives rise to trade unions fighting for the rights and hence manage to get the highest clout.

Yes but it can be tolerated also ,but the worst part is that the non social elements take the undue advantage of the strikes or band and damage the property which is not pardonable

I do not think so. In major economies trade unions are run as front organization for gangsters
Everyone has accepted the fact that they cannot be fought against and have to be given their percentage.
All these expenses are borne by the entrepreneurs and passed on tho the consumers when the pricing is calculated

Yesterday's bandh was actually not the show of Trade Unions and their clout in India. It was just frustration of people in general which was on display yesterday ... like during the Anna/Ramdev's shows against corruption/Jan Lokpal bill etc
If it were a show of strength of Trade Unions in India, CPM/CPI would have been in a much better position than it has been in recent times ... all over the country and especially in W. Bengal!!!

That clout is fading fast. That is why they are engaging in all sorts of attention seeking activities. It is time these stupidities are put to an end.
