The Labor Movement Is a Lot Bigger Than You Think

February 4, 2014

While 11.3% of U.S. workers officially belong to unions, the labor movement is much larger. The movement isn't limited to official union members and the last year showed that, as workers marched side by side, union members or not, to fight back against injustices championed by corporate interests that are out of touch with America's working families. As AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said at the federation's constitutional convention in Los Angeles, “Politicians and employers want to divide us; they try it every single day. They want to tell us who can be in our movement and who can't, and we can't let them.”
