Labor Bargaining Power
Topic Bargaining Power

Increasing evidence demonstrates the ways in which bargaining power shapes economic outcomes. One’s economic success is not merely defined by individual characteristics such as education. Equitable Growth’s work on unions and collective action in the United States examines the ways in which institutions intersect with economic trends and individual characteristics to ensure that workers can share in the gains of the economic growth to which they contribute.
