NYT Editorial On Labor Day In US
The last paragraph of this editorial declared that US policy over the last 35 years has served the interests of Corporate America at the expense of workers. The editorial board connected the dots and arrived at the understanding that there is a relationship between record breaking corporate profits and depressed wages. It called for a full employment agenda but it left that agenda up to our imagination. It will probably stay there. US labor policies have been as they are for a reason. The political agenda is controlled by Corporate America and its friends in the media that depend upon corporate advertising revenues.
