There Is Power Even Without a Union

August 27, 2020

There are many challenges facing those who seek to organize today--the risk of losing their job or benefits, ineffective negotiations, and limited participation from other workers. A recently article published by The Nation, "There Is Power Even Without a Union", notes that there has been a 50 percent decrease in unioninzed workers since the early 1980s. Dan Graff, Ph.D., director of the Higgins Labor Program at the Center for Social Concerns explains that there are many variables contributing to this decline.

"There’s a whole generation or two of mistrust or suspicion or at least resignation that these unions will not be able to do anything for them. It’s kind of a vicious cycle. The labor movement gets smaller. Unions then look less able to do anything. And it’s hard to escape that.”
