How Corporations Engage in Intense Union Busting



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Marcus Baram, a journalist at Capital and Main, where he has contributed several stories to the series, Inside the Secretive World of Union Busting


As union organizing activity ramps up across the United States, the dirty tactics of corporate employers at combating unionizing remain out of public view. Now, a new series by Capital and Main seeks to expose the lengths that employers like Amazon go to in order to undermine workers’ rights.

Journalist Marcus Baram has written about the hundreds of millions of dollars that companies spend to bust unions.
