American unions suffer steep decline in membership

Union membership fallsThe nation's labor unions suffered sharp declines in membership last year, led by losses among public sector workers in cash-strapped states, cities, counties and towns.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics says the unionization rate fell from 11.8 percent to 11.3 percent of all workers, the lowest level since the 1930s. Total union membership fell by about 400,000 workers to 14.4 million.

TVNL Comment: Union busting is a planned and well orchestrated political move across the United States.  American labor is being depleted of any power, and will be at the absolute mercy of predatory corporations.
