Runaway Inequality and the Crisis in U.S. Healthcare is an in-depth examination of the U.S. healthcare system developed specifically for union audiences. It explores:
- How our healthcare system compares to other countries, and who really benefits from it
- How healthcare costs affect collective bargaining
- How our system isn’t designed to deliver healthcare; it’s designed to deliver profits.
- How our healthcare system deepens runaway inequality.
- How we can afford to provide good health care for everyone.
- The jobs related to healthcare insurance that would be eliminated under Medicare for All and how the labor movement can fight for a fair and equitable transition for those workers.
- Lessons from the Canadian healthcare system.
- How we’ll win excellent, affordable healthcare for everyone.
