Episode 58: Unions have Forgotten why They were Originally Created

Michael Schaus

Free to Offend Episode 57 | Guest: Vincent Vernuccio, Institute for the American Worker

As unionization in the private sector continues to decline, many labor activists are getting ever-more desperate to force workers into union representation.

From the federal “PRO Act” in the private sector to state-level “opt-out” periods for public sector workers, unions are increasingly trying to make it more difficult for workers who don’t want union representation to say “no” to membership.

Vincent Vernuccio, president of the Institute for the American Worker and senior fellow at the Mackinac Center, joined the program to talk about current labor policy in Nevada and the nation – and, more importantly, the way unions’ political shenanigans have fundamentally failed to represent the workers they claim to champion
