The Laws of Unintended Consequence: The Effect of Labour Legislation on Wages and Strikes
When politicians consider intervening in labour disputes, they should also consider the long-term, potentially unintended results of such action. In this study, the authors investigate the lessons from previous government legislative interventions, whether through compulsory arbitration, “back-to-work” legislation or bans on replacement workers during strikes, and find these actions have unintended results that give reason for sober second thought.
