The debates in Wisconsin, Indiana and Ohio and across the country have brought issues surrounding public employees’ rights and the tensions that can exist between public sector unions and government into the national spotlight.

- Dean Katz will provide historical perspective drawing from research he has done on taxpayer revolts in the 1970s and their impact on local government bargaining.
- Professors Hurd and Givan, active in media discussions and labor research, will help clarify the issues and what’s at stake for public employees and their unions, government and the public.
