Well, to seriously answer, these days the Eastern EU countries are basically workforce and consumers for Germany. Divided as we are now, we all are a bitch of theirs, "together but separately". But having some kind of close cooperation, we could step up for our interests, like how labor unions do for workers (in theory).
Ofc our problems are deeper than this and we all suffer from the inside.
