management versus labor

Which side will you be on? Since the successes of the New Deal - when all of the US safety nets were put in place to protect people from abject poverty and unions secured benefits for workers - management, owners, and stockholders have worked to dismantle the laws that structure these mechanisms which enable the vaunted individual "pursuit of happiness".
