ABSTRACT
The article presents a response by Richard B. Freeman and James L. Medoff on reviewers' views about the book "What Do Unions Do?." On questions regarding the methodology employed in book authorship, the authors dealt with economic variables on union and non-union workers. The authors believed that union productivity is consistent with industrial productivity. The findings of reviewers resulted in skepticism on the alleged overall productivity of union than non-union working environments. Thus, the theme of the book should be viewed in terms of monopoly and the impacts of voice-respone on the economy.
