In some instances, employees withhold their labor in order to convince non-union employers to agree to union deals.

If you watch Episode 16 of Season 6 of 'Modern Family' (2009-present), which originally aired on ABC-TV Wednesday, February 25, you will see a laptop screen filling your TV (or maybe laptop) screen and a cursor moving over to the upper left corner to connect the computer to WiFi. Across the top horizontal bar of the screen, you will see the words “Sunday 2:04 PM” and “Claire’s MacBook.” Departing from its standard format, this unique episode — which will undoubtedly attract some Emmy Awards consideration — plays out entirely in continuous real time over 21 minutes on the laptop. The audience views the whole show through Claire’s eyes.
