Labor History presents a symposium on David Witwer's SHADOW OF THE RACKETEER: SCANDAL IN ORGANIZED LABOR. This article argues that, contrary to the view of some labor studies scholars, labor racketeers have not been good for labor unions. It documents the diverse ways in which labor racketeers harm labor unions and have weakened the labor movement.
