States With The Strongest And Weakest Unions


To determine the states with the strongest and weakest unions, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed union membership statistics from UnionStats, a database powered by the U.S. Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey. States were ranked based on the number of workers in unions as a percentage of total employment. Additional data on historical union membership and union membership by sector also came from UnionStats. Supplemental data on annual median wage came from the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Employment Statistics program and is for 2019.
