Michael E. Tigar, "How Employers Limit Worker Rights, Using the Power of Government and Market Forces"

MRZineEmployers -- and their allies in government that they can influence with unlimited campaign cash -- have successfully limited worker rights.  Federal and state labor laws exclude entire categories of workers from full protection, including agricultural workers, home workers, and public employees.  The workers nominally under the protection of labor laws are hobbled with great and increasing barriers to effective organization.  Not content with exploiting the limits placed by law, employers exploit market forces to drive down wages and erode working conditions.
