InfluenceWatch Podcast #179: Social Justice Unionism


CRC’s Communications Director Sarah Lee interviews CRC’s Research Director Mike Watson on the 4-part series he penned for Capital Research on Social Justice Unionism. Broadly defined, Social Justice Unionism is the embrace of social justice activism on the part of both public- and private-sector unions even when the activism involved has very little to with the original mandate of labor unions. Mike tries to explain why this happens, what it says about unions usefulness in the modern era, and if conservatives who believe embracing unions is the way forward should rethink their theses (hint: they should).
