We stand without apology for the principle of paying people well. . . That is both morally right, and we believe the right way to organize an economy.” USW economist Ron Bloom made this prolific statement in a presentation he recently gave outlining what happened to our economy.
It's also a principle in the Main Street Recovery Plan, an economic renewal program supported by the United Steelworkers, our International President Leo W. Gerard, more than 100 unions and dozens of economists and others. President Gerard blogs about what went wrong and how we have to fix it here.
