Not All Labor Unions Are Created Equal

In response to Kevin Carson’s critique of so-called right-to-work laws, Shikha Dalmia recently wrote:

While most libertarian thinkers who oppose right-to-work do so because they don’t think it sufficiently diminishes Wagner’s fundamental unfairness toward business, Carson opposes it because he believes that it will increase the unfairness toward Big Labor.

Hardly. Carson had argued that government intervention increases the unfairness toward ordinary workers and labor organizations that genuinely reflect the interests of their members. Dalmia misunderstands Carson’s point by mistaking conservative labor unions like the United Auto Workers Union (UAW) with radical (anti-poltical), grassroots labor organizing.
