Public Support for Unions Continues to Surge

According to a recent press release from AFSCME, a new Gallup poll released last month reveals public support for labor unions reaching 64%—a near 50-year high. It is believed that the positive surge in approval demonstrates how effective unions have been in educating working people about the value and benefits of strong unions to their families and communities. The conversation related to unions will undoubtedly be a topic of discussion leading up to the 2020 elections.
