Contrary to the statements of labor leaders, the central economic
problem facing America today is not the distribution of wealth. It is
productivity. With the productivity of U.S. industry stagnant, or even
declining slightly, the economic pie is no longer growing. Labor leaders, of
course, point to what they consider an unfair distribution of the slices of
pie to justify their demands for further increases in wages and benefits.
And in the past, when the pie was still growing, management could afford
to acquiesce. No longer. Until productivity resumes its growth, there can
be no justification for further increases in the compensation of workers.

Which of the following statements by a labor leader focuses on the logical
weakness in the argument above?
(A) Although the economic pie is no longer growing, the portion of the pie
allocated to American workers remains unjustly small.
(B) If management fails to accommodate the demands of workers, labor
leaders will be forced to call strikes that will cripple the operation of
industry.
(C) Although productivity is stagnant, the U.S. population is growing, so
that the absolute size of the economic pie continues to grow as well.
(D) As a labor leader, I can be concerned only with the needs of working
people, not with the problems faced by management.
(E) The stagnation of U.S. industry has been caused largely by factors—
such as foreign competition—beyond the control of American workers.
