When we write a new software I write unit tests at least for the essential parts and try to convince the team to do the same.
(And when I'm with the estimation team I add unit tests to the items to be calculated.)

But when we add something in old, grown software there's no way to get weeks of additional budget for unit tests.
And I don't see much sense in writing unit tests covering 0.1% of the code.
