Workers Against Workers

According to a recent poll, most Americans are opposed to paying college athletes.  In a similar spirit many working people are opposed to unions because they have to pay dues, or they are conservatives who oppose unions because that’s what conservatives do.  In both of these examples, workers are working against themselves.  If paying college athletes is wrong, why is it correct to pay their coaches million dollar contracts?  If unions aren’t a good thing, why do large businesses join together in the national chamber of commerce and professionals like lawyers and doctors unite in the ABA and the AMA.  Too many American workers have bought the sound bytes pushed out by those who want to exploit them.  Nothing will change until working people start to understand the interests that they share.
