Professor and Chair of Labor and Employment Studies John Logan commented on anti-union law firms' financial involvement with presidential candidates.
Joe Biden's presidential campaign has been accepting contributions from attorneys with anti-worker histories, including maximum donations from Jackson Lewis, one of the most notorious anti-union firms, and five donations of at least $25,000 from individuals connected to union-busting firms. Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar have also received financial support from partners at these firms, though not nearly as much as Biden.
Historically, Jackson Lewis has not only assisted in sabotaging worker unionization efforts at major corporations and universities, but has also made its way into politics. "They're writing speeches, training supervisors, making video and websites to convey the anti-union message," said Logan, "They script everything."
