One of the first American labor newspapers, The Man, was published in New York City. It cost one cent and according to The History of American Journalism, “died an early death”. Another labor paper, the N.Y. Daily Sentinel, had been launched four years earlier.

Study Links Declining Union Strength to More Workplace Deaths
Updated On: Jul 18, 2018
July 18, 2018 | HEALTH & SAFETY | It’s no secret that the waning power of American unions has contributed to stagnant wages. But a new study suggests that this trend hasn’t affected just worker income. It also may have cost thousands of lives. The new study focuses in particular on the extent to which state “right to work” laws translate into more workplace deaths. Using mathematical modeling techniques, the study found that the rate of job-related deaths among U.S. workers from 1992 through 2016 was 14.2 percent higher than it would have been if union membership had not been undercut by right to work laws… Labor advocates say the right to work movement has ignored the role played by unions in reducing occupational fatalities… Fair Warning
