ABSTRACT
This article presents the author's response to the comments of researchers Lance Compa and Sheldon Friedman about his article "Democratizing the Demand for Workers' Rights," published in the present issue of the journal "Dissent." The author says that Compa is right when he says that law matters, and he agrees with Compa's reading of the present flaws in American labor law. He adds that Compa is overly optimistic when he contends that human rights arguments provide a unifying force that can help overcome those flaws. The author says that he is happy that Sheldon Friedman promotes the Employees Free Choice Act.
