Barry Bennett on the Benefits of Unions

Marylhurst MBA faculty member Barry Bennett writes about the need for unions in this recent Oregonian article:

“The “union wage premium” — the amount by which wages of unionized employees exceed those of non-unionized employees — is about 14 percent. In addition, unionized workers are 28 percent more likely than non-unionized workers to have employer-provided health care and 54 percent more likely to have employer pension plans.” Bennett writes.
