I hate to be the nagging marxist, but what if the more progressive/radical point is that IF organized labor IS an enemy of wealth (i.e. wealth in its abstract, value-form as contrasted with material wealth) then so much for THAT. Metzger is basically saying that the organized labor should directly manage its own production of capital. He's assuring anyone that "by empowering workers and trade unions, capital is placed into the hands of the many and, through this means," the reproduction of the capitalist system may continue. Unless he's hiding some new form of production that is primarily for use than exchange, isn't this still neoliberal governmentality?
