About OnLabor

On Labor is a blog by Benjamin Sachs and Jack Goldsmith devoted to workers, unions, and their politics.  We interpret our subject broadly to include the current crisis in the traditional union movement (why union decline is happening and what it means for our society); the new and contested forms of worker organization that are filling the labor union gap; how work ought to be structured and managed; how workers ought to be represented and compensated; and the appropriate role of government – all three branches – in each of these issues.
