    Why Would A Union Oppose Medicare For All?

    a union made up largely of immigrant workers, living in a country that has elected Donald trump as its president — gee, why wouldn’t they want a government-run health insurance program? /s

    also, I found this to be an enlightening tome on unions in general, and syndicalism in particular. various anarchist, syndicalist, and anarchosyndicalist factions of the various labor unions opposed government meddling of any kind (minimum wage laws, medicare-for-all type insurance, etc) in labor issues.
