Professor of Labor and Employment Studies John Logan quoted in Texas Observer story on grocery workers

Despite the success of grocery stores during the pandemic, Professor John Logan believes there are barriers preventing grocery workers from organizing and gaining power.

“The very big nonunion players—the Amazons, the Walmarts—are quite likely to emerge in an even more dominant position in food retail when the pandemic ends,” Logan said. “Unions generally don’t do well when the labor market is tanking and there’s tens of millions unemployed.”
