Historical American Labor and Union Newspapers Online

Union membership was about 15% within the Nineteen Thirties and peaked at about 35% within the Nineteen Fifties within the U.S. At present, union membership is about 10%, despite the fact that prior to now couple of many years, public-sector union membership has elevated.

Unions, labor actions and employees had specialty newspapers all through the nation. A few of these have been digitized and the hyperlinks by state are under. Please notice that I’ve excluded subscription databases from the record.
