The House of Representatives passed a bill last week that would strengthen the rights of employees to form unions, and it drew an immediate veto threat from President Bush. But if Mr. Bush were, as he claims, truly concerned about rising income inequality...he would...urge the Senate to approve it. The most significant change...is a majority sign up, which would allow employees at a company to unionize if a majority signed cards expressing their desire to do so... Today’s economic ills—most notably, worsening income inequality (are) caused in part by unions’ decline and the workers’ resulting lack of bargaining power.
