Medicare for All and the Future of Labor

With the Biden Administration safely installed, the U.S. labor movement is entering into a period of debate about its own precarious future. The fight for Medicare for All will play a central role in that debate both because our unsustainable employment-based health insurance system is a major driver of wage stagnation and working class insecurity and because advocacy for Medicare for All is a major marker for those who maintain that a revitalized labor movement must speak on behalf of the entire working class. These debates are likely to come to a head in the coming year as the AFL-CIO prepares for its quadrennial convention, the Teamsters Union faces a crucial national election and many unions face major challenges at the bargaining table. Krystal Ball moderates a discussion among three veteran grassroots labor leaders about the factors driving the crisis of the labor movement and the role of Medicare for All in its renewal.
