ABSTRACT
The article presents an empirical evidence and economic analysis of the two divergent views over the role of public sector collective bargaining in American law, focusing whether public sector collective bargaining undermines or promote democratic government. It suggests that public sector collective bargaining allowed public sector employees to keep pace with private sector compensation and that labor unions have no significant negative impact on public employee productivity.
