"A well-paid slave is, nonetheless, still a slave."
There are basically three reasons why Marvin Miller was able to transform major league baseball players from moderately well-paid young men into athletic Vanderbilts being paid, in some cases, about $30,000 per at-bat, or $100,000 an inning.
The point was that it's not really a great accomplishment to have union members be overcompensated, every union leads to that.
I don't know why I should [value] an abstract "industry" over actual people and actual workers. (Especially since by "industry" I'm pretty sure you mean "the owners of the particular firms within the industry".
Funny; as a customer of the industry, I find modern baseball to be great. It's also super-profitable for owner and employee alike
Sounds about right. Goddam Randian Commie just ruined the game, didn't he?
As a hockey fan, I can't stop thinking about how good baseball has it. It is far and away the best run league and the reason it is the best run league is because Marvin Miller and Don Fehr forced them to be a well run league by removing the irrational and unjust privileges of the owners. It's evolved into a near perfect system in which almost everyone wins
Yeah, I can see why the Lords of Baseball don't want Marvin Miller in the Hall of Fame.
