Annual Union Byte

Friday, 20 January 2006 13:41
CEPR produced a Union Byte, an analysis of the annual "Union Members" report, which is released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The report details union membership over the course of the previous year. John Schmitt and Ben Zipperer, co-authors of the Byte, point out some amazing news: For the first time ever, manufacturing workers are no more likely to be represented by a union than the average U.S. worker. This observation challenges the conventional perception that manufacturing workers are more likely to be members of a union than any other employment sector.
