All Points: Labor unions are on the decline in the U.S.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that from 1983 to 2013 union membership in the U.S. declined by 3.2 million workers (to 14.5 million from 17.7 million). The percentage of wage and salary workers who were members of unions dropped from 20.1 percent to 11.3 percent. Texas had about one-fourth as many union members as New York, despite having 2.7 million more wage and salary employees.
