The Number of Unionized Workers in 2016 Reach All Time Low

In 2016, the number of unionized American workers fell to the lowest level in recorded history. Only 10.7% of workers belonged to unions in 2016 compared to more than 20% in the early 1980s.  Randy Johnson, VP of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, attributes the decline to “…workers remain uninterested in the product that the unions are selling.”  To provide perspective, the IAM has lost over a third of its dues paying members over the last 27 years.
