For those who say Strong Unions are A Problem for the Nation
In the mid 1950's:
35 percent of the US Labor Force was unionized
The top 1 percent of earners made 9 percent of the income
The US was the most equal advanced nation in the world in terms of income distribution
Millions of American families were moving out of crowded apartments into
11 percent of the US Labor force is unionized
The top 1 percent of earners makes 23 percent of the income
The US is one of the most unequal advanced nation in terms of income distribution
Tens of millions of American families share or rent out space in what were once private homes while 13 million homes and apartments remain empty.
And you say that strong unions threaten the American way of life and are undermining our education system?
