Why the Amazon Workers Never Stood a Chance - The New York Times πŸ”— πŸ“° πŸ—£ πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ ✊🏽

Our system of labor law and regulations has too strongly tilted the playing field in favor of companies and against unions.

Unless moderate Democrats agree to eliminate or reform the filibuster, they are as responsible for this era of corporate domination over workers as their Republican colleagues. The union movement needs to organize for the economy of 2021, not 1950. Amazon, Google, Walmart and Target are this generation’s Ford, General Motors and U.S. Steel. Winning a union in the auto and steel industries was nearly impossible without the government leveling the playing field.
