The Arc of Inequality

Social science researcher Colin Gordon evaluates the arc of inequality between organized labor and the richest 10 percent of Americans in this March 2013 Dissent magazine article. Gordon writes, "In the United States, economic security remains shackled to private job-based benefits that are increasingly elusive (or expensive), and public policies are crafted and calibrated as supplements—or as reluctant and lean alternatives."

In addition to his text evaluation, Gordon has created a colorful graphic to illustrate his findings.
