    It would be wrong however to single out any one group for comparison or sacrifice, suffice to point out that the average wage cost at Qantas is $92, while at Emirates it is $47, and for Singapore Airlines $42, And one would guess that the productivity at those two foreign airlines is significantly : Geoffrey Thomas. Public-sector unions thus distort the labor market, weaken public finances, and diminish the responsiveness of government and the quality of public services.

Under Gov. Scott Walker, Wisconsin reduced government spending, sidelined labor, loosened environmental regulations and restricted access to voting. As a result, Kaufman writes, the state’s Author: Michael O’Donnell.

Labor unions are a feminist issue: It doesn't get more feminist than battling the gender and race wage gaps, advocating for paid parental leave, and empowering lower-income workers. Check out this cartoon by Barry Deutsch, which perfectly demonstrates how arguments against labor unions don't stand a chance in feminist discourse.

Empowering organized labor by means like tripartite business-labor-government bargaining can provide real checks on the managerial overclass, without sacrificing the dynamism of the mixed economy.

Over time, “right to work” laws destroy unions. That’s their real purpose. It’s no coincidence that 19 of the 20 states with union membership rates under 8 percent are all “right to work” states.

“Right to work” legislation isn’t driven by a groundswell of disgruntled union members chafing under union oppression. It can’t be sustained as it is right now if we care about the public’s overall health. We can’t afford it. The World Health Organization ranks the U.S.

'Young people do not believe unions are providing services worthy of their cost' The decline of unions has little to do with political attacks upon them: in our democracy, if. Leo XIII’s solution would be a requirement that wages be sufficient to support a family, with labor unions to secure that right, combined with assistance from the State if needed.
