One problem with labor unions today is that their
top staffs consist of college-trained lawyers,
economists, and labor relations experts who
cannot understand the concerns of real workers.
One goal of union reform movements should be
to build staffs out of workers who have come up
from the ranks of the industry involved.

The argument above depends primarily on which
of the following assumptions?

(A) Higher education lessens people’s
identification with their class background.
(B) Union staffs should include more people
with first-hand industrial supervisory
experience.
(C) People who have worked in a given
industry can understand the concerns of
workers in that industry.
(D) Most labor unions today do not fairly
represent workers’ interests.
(E) A goal of union reform movements should
be to make unions more democratic.
