This article is written like a screed you'd find in the Progressive Populist.
I would like to see certain anti-worker practices made illegal, notably getting out of pension and benefit obligations through bankruptcy. As far as I'm concerned, a pension is not a "promise," but is deferred compensation--therefore property already owned by the employee, not merely a debt owed to the employee. Thus walking away from pension obligations is outright criminal larceny. Laws should reflect this, giving proceeds from liquidation to pensioners first, before owners, creditors, bond holders.
But that's different topic from the reality that workers can indeed implode a company (kill their own golden goose) by making it non-profitable, or by striking and killing cash flow thus making it instantly non-viable.
