The Big Picture: Strengthen Unions

Strengthening Unions in the Big Picture

In the Big Picture, the decline in union membership and the decline of the middle class go hand in hand. Today, wages in anti-union states are lower by an average of about $6,000 a year. We must:

  • Make it easier to form a union, with a simple majority of workers voting up or down

  • Build in real penalties against companies that violate labor laws by firing workers who try to organize a union or intimidating others.

  • Enact a federal law that overturns so-called state right-to-work laws.
