Robert Reich has a great column in today's San Francisco Chronicle. As he writes about the Republican Party's battle against public employee unions across the country:
This war on workers' rights is an assault on the middle class, and it is undermining the American economy.
The American economy can't get out of neutral until American workers have more money in their pockets to buy what they produce. And unions are the best way to give them the bargaining power to get better pay.
Worried about income inequality? You should be worried about this.
