David Doorey (York Univ. (Canada)) and Wilma Leibman (former NLRB Chair, visiting at Cornell LER) completed a short survey of their Canadian and American undergrad business students taking employment law this term. The survey asked for their views on such things as minimum wages, unions, and income inequality. David concedes the results are unscientific, but interesting nonetheless.
What I find most interesting about the results personally is that although both Canadian and American students support minimum wage increases, the Canadian students were much more in support of unions and collective bargaining rights than their American counterparts.
Check out the entire survey for all the results.
