Yesterday, a Congressional Committee chaired by Rep. John Kline (R-MN) heard testimony regarding the myriad of unintended consequences that could result from allowing student/athletes to form labor unions.  Current Baylor president Ken Starr was particularly adamant that allowing student/athletes to unionize would accidentally expose the students to a host of regulations and laws, such as wage/hour laws and workers’ compensation laws.  Rep. Kline echoed Mr. Starr’s statements, further opining that allowing college athletes to unionize could set a “dangerous precedent.”
