U.S. Labor Law for the 21st Century

Richard Bales & Charlotte Garden, The Cambridge Handbook of U.S. Labor Law for the Twenty-First Century (Cambridge University Press, 2020).

Designed to appeal to those being introduced to the field as well as experts seeking new insights, this book demonstrates how federal labor law is fail
ing today's workers and disempowering unions; how union jobs pay better than nonunion jobs and help to increase the wages of even nonunion workers; and how, when union jobs vanish, the wage premium also vanishes. At the same time, the book offers a range of solutions from the radical, such as a complete overhaul of federal labor law, to the incremental, including reforms that could be undertaken by federal agencies on their own.
