  • The Pro-Business Argument for Single-Payer Healthcare
    Posted On: Jan 17, 2018
    Jan. 17, 2018 | HEALTH CARE | […] Mark Dudzic, the national coordinator of the Labor Campaign for Single-Payer, argues that one of the major reasons that corporations do not support single-payer health care is the complex power dynamics between employer and employee surrounding the issue of healthcare. People are scared of losing their healthcare coverage, and if it is provided by the company for which they work, the employer has additional power over the employee. In the American system, losing employment can mean not only losing income but also losing healthcare coverage, sometimes for the entire family. When healthcare is on the line, workers’ incentives to strike or bargain are lower. If Dudzic is right in his analysis, companies are willing to pay the extra costs of providing healthcare in order to have leverage against their own employees—a dynamic that is, at the least, troubling.
