ABOUT LABOR UNITED
Unions reached their membership peak during the 1970s, and since have experienced a steady decline. Unions have fallen victim to intense criticism while trying to carry out their mission of preserving a worker's right to just treatment and a life of their choosing, the very aspects that made America the land of the free. Labor United was formed in 2017 to be a positive change to the negative perception surrounding modern unions.
