Do the French unions have that much stronger roots among the people?  
Are they less bureaucratized than US unions.  Or is it that the arrival 
of neoliberalism in Europe was more sudden?


But then also I'm amazed that the immigration issue sparked such an 
outpouring, especially after immigrants seem to have been effectively 
marginalized, given the intense media attention to fringe groups like 
the Minutemen.


Why is it that it is so much more difficult for workers to see 
themselves as a class than for immigrants to identify with each other?  
The media had given the impression that a good number of 
second-generation immigrants saw a continue inflow of immigration 
undermining their own position.
