Workers unions can’t win a fight with the unions, as the left often does, because they’ve become a “macho” group.
Workers unions need to grow to be a powerful force in our economy.
But they can’t compete with the corporate powerhouses of the left, which are still in the game.
And workers unions cannot become a dominant force in the labor movement, which is dominated by big business.
The left has to fight back, because the corporate powers are going to push back against unions and labor.
In this way, unions can help us win a more equitable, more sustainable, and more just society.
And if the union movement succeeds, the future of America will look very different than it does today.
