PODCAST: Obamacare and Unions Drag Down Job Creation

In this week’s Heritage in Focus [1], labor economist James Sherk discusses his two new reports, one on Obamacare’s effect on recovery [2] and the other on unions’ effect on job creation [3]. Make sure to listen to the full interview, here [1].

Sherk’s research is captured well in the graph below. In short, Obamacare is bad for jobs. Not only that, but unions are preventing wage increases, bonuses and additional job growth, as well. Listen to James [1] discuss these issues and where we go from here.
