A scathing critique of "How Yale Killed a Vibrant City Economy" - from a free-market Republican, and in the New Haven Register, no less: Yale was not being targeted by unions because it is the only game in town. It was targeted because its labor relations, like its property management, are based on the university's failure to grasp its responsibilities as the city's largest employer and property owner. As a responsible corporate citizen, Yale should understand, as Harvard does, that paying living wages and adequate pensions, curbing its physical expansion, and making contributions to municipal revenues commensurate to the demands made on them by non-taxpaying students, faculty, and staff, is far less costly than the ill will its current policies engender.
