The United States was once a bastion of strong collective bargaining rights, but labor unions have steadily been losing ground, with membership at its lowest rate in decades. In his latest article, Harper's contributing editor Garret Keizer details the decline of workers' unions and the possible effects of court decisions such as Janus v. AFSCME. Keizer joins Forum to discuss his article and why the conflict between labor and management is a “fight to the death.”
