Paul Waldman's distillation of the Bureau of Labor Statistics' new report is a must for anyone wanting a reminder of the great good unions do their members (good to the tune of a 20-25% increase in salary). As for the canard that unions stifle innovation and choke economies, take a peek at the top 10 unionized states and the bottom 10, and try and figure out which group, on average, has the more advanced economies, higher GDP's, largest tech/knowledge sectors, and best quality of life. Don't worry, it won't take you long.
