Americans’ approval of unions skyrocketed to its highest point in seven years. That’s the latest from a Gallup poll released this week.
Americans are seeing the connection between unions and balancing the economy, allowing workers to come together to build a better life for their families. Even employees at non-traditional workplaces are getting in on the action, seeing how unions bring a voice on the job, improve incomes, and help achieve real work-life balance. Overall, Gallup found that support for labor unions is now at an impressive 58 percent, a rise of 5 percentage points since 2008. Six out of every 10 Americans now supports labor unions. A Business Insider headline Tuesday put it simply: "Americans want unions."
