Canada Should Aspire To Be More Like France

Canada should aspire to be more like France. Or perhaps Germany, where even Wal-Mart employees are unionised (unions are mandatory). Without the right to strike, the right to cause maximum inconvenience to your employer, what is the point?
 
It is no fun to be on strike, particularaly when you are a well paid employee (strike pay is usually independent of your normal salary). Pay public employees enough, treat them well, and they won't.
 
PS. I'm writing this at my private sector non-unionised job because I have nothing better to do, so don't give me that nonsense about unproductive unionised public sector employees...
