Corrupted Unions Unfazed By RICO

"Organized crime is a shadow of what it was 20 years ago," said Bruce Mouw, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who led the probe that sent former Gambino boss John Gotti to prison.

"But you still have five families [in New York], you have captains, you have crews; they still control a lot of labor unions, they still control a lot of the construction industry, different companies, still commit crimes and according to the indictments, they still kill people."

Prosecutors wield a powerful weapon against organized crime with the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, a broad law enacted by Congress in 1970 that allows them to charge Mafia members with being part of a criminal enterprise based on the commission of certain crimes.
