September 19, 2022
Department Chair and Professor of Labor and Employment Studies John Logan shared his perspective on union membership campaigns and weak union protection laws in various news stories for several news outlets.
For example, Logan was quoted in an article in The Washington Post about labor union campaigns, saying, "The real significance of these campaigns is not in the number of new members, which is pretty meaningless, but the excitement, optimism, and inspiration they generate in some sections of the labor force."
He also expressed that he believes corporations, such as Starbucks, can easily escape union protection laws since the punishment for violating them is not strong.
