Bill Mitchell: Why are the unions accepting massive real wage cuts?

The point is that many unions have become part of the elite structures that suppress workers and advance the interests of capital

In the 1890s, the worker organisations would be out of strike right now demanding real wage growth in the face of the profit gouging.

The 2023 union leadership seems to fall over itself to accept shocking pay offers from employers – both private and public – and then spin the agreements as if the workers have gained something.

Capital is the winner, the workers are the losers.
