Labour Law and the New Inequality

In response to the intensifying attack on labour (now there's a private members's bill to eliminate the card check system for federal public unions) here is another piece to put in your arsenal. 

Michael Lynk's Labour Law and the New Equality provides background on the Rand Formula, identifying it as part of a collection of equalizing institutions (progressive taxation, labour and employmments standards, and public education, healthcare and infrastructure). He also places the attack on labour in the context of Paul Krugman's Great Divergence (erosion of the middle class) and the Second Gilded Age.
