Teacher collective bargaining is a highly debated feature of the education system in the US. This paper presents the first analysis of the effect of teacher collective bargaining laws on long-run labor market and educational attainment outcomes, exploiting the timing of passage of duty-tobargain laws across cohorts within states and across states over time. Using American Community Survey data linked to each respondents state of birth, we examine labor market outcomes and educational attainment for 35-49 year olds, separately by gender. We find robust evidence that exposure to teacher collective bargaining laws worsens the future labor market outcomes of men: in the first 10 years after passage of a duty-to-bargain law, male earnings decline by $2,134 (or 3.93%) per year and hours worked decrease by 0.42 hours per week. The earnings estimates for men indicate that teacher collective bargaining reduces earnings by $213.8 billion in the US annually. We also find evidence of lower male employment rates, which is driven by lower labor force participation. Exposure to collective bargaining laws leads to reductions in the skill levels of the occupations into which male workers sort as well. Effects are largest among black and Hispanic men. Estimates among women are often confounded by secular trend variation, though we do find suggestive evidence of negative impacts among nonwhite women. Using data from the 1979 National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, we demonstrate that collective bargaining laws lead to reductions in measured non-cognitive skills among young men.

I take it this means teacher’s unions are bad for the future careers of the students.
The teachers’ unions promote lower quality education. Lower quality education results in lower quality preparedness for the workforce...for life in general.
Men are $hit upon in colleges. Men can’t get jobs. This is discrimination, and the feminists in charge don’t care.
I suppose it never crossed their mind that more and more men might seek out male dominated professions because they are less likely to have to go through dyke dominated professions like HR Managers to get hired.
And, I should add, they can't figure out why more and more young men are ditching college altogether.
Collective bargaining in the public sector must be outlawed. The taxpayer is not represented!
