Think Progress notes:
Kristol's attack on unionization ignores the fact that unions are good for the American economy since unions help workers secure higher wages and greater benefits. Additionally, the collective bargaining of unions give workers the ability to shape the conditions of their employment, as the NFL players union successfully demonstrated.
According to Dan Lebowitz, executive director of the Center for Sports and Society at Northeastern University, the NFL has 78 percent African-American players. Because the players' union has leverage, that means the players won't have to work for someone who said just two years ago, "the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it."
