One way were are divided is those who think results are the measure of success and those who judge based on intent, or fairness.
Well, the result is jobs lost. Those who judge on results will blame the union workers who did chose to stay away from work.
The intention was to get fair treatment and wages, well good for them, they really stuck to their guns right up to the moment they were squashed like a bug.
If you think about it, what really matters is the end result. And maybe if you were thinking the other way you should consider switching sides.

Are workers who are on strike entitled to collect Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits?
It depends on the specific state law. A few states allow workers to collect UI if the strike is caused by an employer's violation of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) or an employer's breach of the collective bargaining agreement. Some states allow workers to collect UI if the employer has locked out the workers.
Most states, however, do not permit workers on strike to collect UI benefits. The period of disqualification varies by state--in some states, the disqualification lasts for the duration of the strike; in other states, the disqualification lasts for a fixed period of time. If a striker is permanently replaced, however, the worker then may be eligible for UI benefits.

I'm guessing that you have never tried to negotiate a labour contract...I'm guessing I'm about the only one on this thread who has. A strike is the final stage, and is not entered upon casually as it's pretty well known that you never quite make your money back. BUT...it is the only stick that labour wields when negotiations deteriorate.
