United Auto Workers Local 174 President John Zimmick works in his office in Romulus, Mich. on Friday March 22, 2013. Zimmick worries not just about his local - but the fate of all unions. "It weighs on me every single night before I go to bed," he says. "Unions don't have the leverage and power that we used to. It doesn't mean we won't regain it. The unions, in my opinion, will come roaring back. .... But the image is terrible right now. The media spins us as hurting business and the non-union workers — there's animosity and jealousy toward us." (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)
