What is the state of organized labor today?
President Grover Cleveland declared Labor Day a federal holiday more than 100 years. What is the state of organized labor today? WWJ asked Marick Masters, professor of management for Wayne State University’s School of Business Administration and director of Labor@Wayne. "Organized labor is in a difficult position," commented Masters. 'I think it’s very important to have strong labor institutions to protect the interests of workers and to extract a fair share of the wealth that is produced in society."
