Benjamin Sachs, “What Does Citizens United Mean for Unions?” Thurs, March 22, 12-1pm, WCC 1023.

Prof. Benjamin Sachs will talk about how the differing legal frameworks in which unions and corporations exist give corporations an advantage over unions in electioneering, and how better policy would put them on more equal footing.
