Americans’ Support for Unions on the Rise

Though support for unions took a hit during the recent recession, approval of unions is now on the rebound with almost six in ten Americans supporting unions, according to a recent Gallup Poll.

The poll found that, “The solid majority approve of unions, and most would like to see unions’ power strengthened, or at least maintained.”

And, in an encouraging note for the future, union support is strongest among younger workers, with 66 percent of 18- to 34-year-olds responding that they approve of unions.
