MLBPA boss Tony Clark admits issues with minor-league pay, but actions lacking - CBSSports.com

Actually only some of them will become members. For the most part, those who do stop caring about minor league wages. So, when you read someone railing about the owners on the issue, make sure to make the point about the MLB players walking lockstep with them on the issue.

As Clark himself said, “Invariably those are guys are going to become our members.” It’s time to treat them as such.

I spoke to Clark off the record following his talk in front of the BBWAA members at large. I’ll fulfill my promise to keep our chat off the record, but will say this: Behind the scenes, there have been discussions on how to solve the problem of sub-poverty wages for minor-leaguers. Absorbing the approximately 4,500 players who toil in the minors at any one time into the MLBPA isn’t on the table. But alternative methods to offer help have been put forth.
