From the page: "Who are the real âoejob creatorsâ? Contrary to conventional wisdom, the answer seems to be: People who have jobs â" particularly those which pay well. Well-paid employees buy things, and that creates jobs for other people.
And what creates those kinds of jobs? A healthy union movement. Unions are also a bulwark against income inequality, an economic distortion which even conservative Forbes magazine acknowledges is bad for the economy."
"It looks to all the world as if there's a correlation here: Union membership goes down - deficits go up. Perhaps the correlation isn't as strong as it looks, but the idea isn't crazy. Higher-paid employees pay more in taxes, which is good for the government's bottom line. They require fewer government services. The same is true of their families, neighborhoods, and communities. And their contribution to economic growth means everybody's better off."
