In fact, if we treated Labor like Capital — if we thought about the Teamsters, instead of as lazy, shiftless “workers” who are trying to get more pay for doing less work, as a COMPANY that sold a PRODUCT, suddenly the whole idea becomes more palatable, doesn’t it? You wouldn’t expect a company that sold you 40 hours of truck-driving over a week to throw in an extra twenty hours free of charge just because you wanted it, any more than you’d expect to go into the McDonalds and say, “My blood sugar is low today, toss an extra hamburger in there for me.
