Paul Krugman On The Decline In Unions

“Krugman says, the biggest culprit has been a hostile political environment that aided and abetted an aggressive, often lawless anti-union, anti-workers’ rights offensive by many of the nation’s employers.”

Really?  Then I look forward to his damning critique of The New York Times for the “hostile political environment that aided and abetted an aggressive, often lawless anti-union, anti-workers’ rights offensive” that caused this:

The New York Times News Service will lay off at least 25 editorial employees next year and will move the editing of the service to a Florida newspaper owned by The New York Times Company, the newspaper and the Newspaper Guild said Thursday.


The plan for the news service calls for The Gainesville Sun, whose newsroom is not unionized and has lower salaries, to take over editing and page design. Ms. McNulty said new jobs would be created at The Sun to handle the work.

So the Times is going to eliminate union jobs in New York and create new non-union jobs in Florida.  Hypocrite Paul will undoubtedly remain silent, because the narrative doesn’t suit his bias, or his employer.
