The Greater Good

28 Dec, 2017

“One of the arguments in favor of organized labor is that they advocate for broad social change even on issues that don’t directly affect union members. (For example, national healthcare and high minimum wages. These don’t really affect union members much since they’ve already negotiated health coverage and wages far higher than the minimum, but unions have consistently fought for them anyway.) This behavior is actually a little mysterious, since interest groups usually stick to fairly narrow parochial concerns, but there’s a pretty broad consensus that unions have always acted this way, both in the U.S. and Europe.”
