This Labor Day, we have cause to celebrate. Public support for unions has reached 64 percent in a recent Gallup poll.
Gallup has been asking the public about support for unions since 1936. Since 1967, the polling agency observes, the union approval rating “has only occasionally surpassed 60 percent. The current 64 percent reading is one of the highest union approval ratings Gallup has recorded over the past fifty years.”
