"There has been a good deal of talk recently about the public value of unions, much of it framed in the euphemistic language of 'right to work' laws and the alleged unfairness of 'collective bargaining.' There is probably something to be said about how unions have occasionally exploited the power of collective bargaining in ways that may not always be in the public interest, but as Hariman pointed out recently, corporations are no less collective bargaining agents representing the special interests of owners and shareholders. And so it hardly seems reasonable to single out unions as singularly or generically problematic in this regard. But since we are approaching the 100th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, there might be a different point worth making."
