As Labor Day Turns 125, Union Approval Near 50-Year High
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Sixty-four percent of Americans approve of labor unions, surpassing 60% for the third consecutive year and up 16 percentage points from its 2009 low point. This comes 125 years after President Grover Cleveland signed a law establishing the Labor Day holiday after a period of labor unrest in the U.S.
...
Democrats, independents and Republicans are all more likely to view unions positively now than they were at the low point a decade ago. Notably, since 2009, union approval has increased among each party group by 16 or 17 points. Democrats (82%) remain far more likely than Republicans (45%) to approve of unions.
I've heard this bull before.

One of my fav comments about unions (think it was in a debate) was that, "Unions brought you the weekend". True!
