"Most European countries have far greater levels of union coverage than the USA.
As of 2013, more than two-thirds of workers in Denmark, Sweden, and Finland were union members." And those countries are better places to live than the USA.
Fun fact about Denmark:
There is no minimum wage law, yet McDonald's employees make ~$20/hour.
This is in part due to the 3-party negotiation tradition, where the government is a mediator in the negotiations between companies and unions. The Danish government is seen as a neutral party since they want to keep both workers and companies happy. They want workers (ie. voters) to be compensated in a fair manner and they want economical growth for companies (hoping to create more jobs).
