The Corporate Conquest of a Labor-Relations School
Russell Mokhiber, '79, editor of The Corporate Crime Reporter, http://www.corporatecrimereporter.com/ has an article on the Cornell University School of Industrial and Labor Relations (ILR) in the July edition of Harper's Magazine.
After providing background on some of the many corporate contributors with classroom and Career Services wall plaques, he writes, "Yes, like any other school, ILR needs to raise money. But surely the administration could screen out the corporate criminals, the junk-food pushers, the too-big-to-fail banks, and the lockout lawyers."
