Anti-union laws associated with significantly more workplace deaths in US states, 1992-2016.
Objective Economic policies can have unintended consequences on population health. In recent years, many states in the USA have passed ‘right to work’ (RTW) laws which weaken labour unions. The effect of these laws on occupational health remains unexplored. This study fills this gap by analysing the effect of RTW on occupational fatalities through its effect on unionisation. Methods Two-way fixed effects regression models are used to estimate the effect of unionisation on occupational mortality per 100 000 workers, controlling for state policy liberalism and workforce composition over the period 1992–2016. In the final specification, RTW laws are used as an instrument for unionisation to recover causal effects. Results The Local Average Treatment Effect of a 1% decline in unionisation attributable to RTW is about a 5% increase in the rate of occupational fatalities.

RIP net neutrality: Ajit Pai's 'fuck you' to the American people becomes official.
Today marks an historic day, and a huge victory for the enemies of democracy. Rather than serve the American people, the US government sold our freedom to Verizion, Comcast, AT&T and other telcom companies. Net neutrality is dead.
