Mr. Ratlov proposes mandatory labor history in government-run schools, but wouldn't this be the inappropriate injection of an overt political agenda into the school curriculum? The California Federation of Teachers and the University of California Institute for Labor and Employment tried to implement this idea, with little success, in the late 1990s and early 2000s. See my 2003 article in the journal Government Union Review entitled "Labor History in Public Schools: Unions Get ‘Em While They’re Young" at this link:

Since there is a federally enforced right to have a union, and since this right is personal to each worker, perhaps the assent of one worker should suffice to institute a union.

Anthony Ratkov

I think that all four states involved in this debacle should be required to establish mandatory labor education classes in all their public schools. Labor education classes would teach high school students that they have the right to join unions. Labor education would also teach students the history of the labor movement. Actually,classroom instruction in labor issues should be mandatory in all 50 states,not just in the four worst states.

Anthony Ratkov

Unions should be pushing for a federal law that requires all the schools in the U.S.A. to teach students that they have the right to join labor unions after they graduate. Most students in the U.S.A.graduate from high school without realizing that they have the right to join a union. This country needs a federal law that requires every school district in the U.S.A. to teach students the basics of labor law,and also to teach the history of the labor movement. The problem is the lack of education. Labor education should be mandatory for all high school students in the USA.

" state legislatures to attack the American historical legacy that is the foundation of our common prosperity."

Like private ballots?(actually IIRC, there weren't real private ballots till like the late 1800s, but still)

This is fantastic. If only there were more vigorous enforcement like this by the federal government in this current irrational political climate that encourages (mostly Republican) state legislatures to attack the American historical legacy that is the foundation of our common prosperity.
