A Look at How Unions Lift Workers
Updated On: Nov 22, 2021
Nov. 22, 2021 | WORKING AMERICA | More than 14 million workers across the United States – carpenters, steelworkers, nurses, teachers, truck drivers, and many others – are union members, but rarely does one read how unions have improved workers’ jobs and lives. There are plenty of stories about weeks-long strikes, hard-fought union drives, unions’ role in political campaigns, and unions fighting to raise the minimum wage. Perhaps it’s considered too prosaic, but there are hardly any stories that examine in depth how belonging to a union or joining a union has changed workers’ lives and improved things for their families. This report takes a look at five workers – a construction worker, a charter school teacher, a barista, a forklift operator at a warehouse, and a hospital aide – and documents how belonging to a union has lifted those workers, has improved pay and benefits and given them a far stronger voice at work… American Prospect  Photo: Donnell Jefferson, Teamsters 667, is interviewed for this story
