    the logic of the free market pricing the cost of labor inexorably leads to slavery. employers who would pay their employees poverty wages are not decent human beings, in my opinion. the handwaving about the market is just an excuse for a lack of common decency.

    •  Reality is not always pretty. (0+ / 0-)

      Unions help, but I see them more as a critical tactic for our overall problems, which require a more culturally focused strategy.
