Ep 11: Labor on the Rise? A Conversation with UE’s Carl Rosen
Play • 40 min

With public approval of unions at its highest since 1965, organizing drives bringing in 200,000 new union members, union election petitions to the NLRB up 51 percent, 60 million workers who want a union, and low unemployment spurring strike actions and gains in wages and benefits, many have declared that labor is on the rise. Yet in 2022, the overall share of workers who are union members declined from 10.3 to 10.1 percent. And the Supreme Court stands ready to significantly curtail workers’ right to strike. Ep 11 takes a close look at the obstacles and opportunities for Labor as we head into 2023.
