Exploited workers

My boy Russ Roberts has a very interesting interview with Stanford's Roger Noll on the economics of sports. The most interesting takeaway for me was that, since the advent of free agency, professional athletes in the U.S. now earn 50-60% of their teams' total revenue. This is just a little below the average of workers in other industries.
