Good for America

Unions are Good for America and all Americans.

Unions are associated with higher productivity, lower employee turnover, improved workplace communication, and a better-trained workforce.

There is a substantial amount of academic literature on the following benefits of unions and unionization to employers and the economy:

  • Economic growth
  • Productivity
  • Competitiveness
  • Product or service delivery and quality
  • Training
  • Turnover
  • Solvency of the firm
  • Workplace health and safety
  • Economic development

Anyone can join Working America and in solidarity with working people across the country, fight for our common interests – good jobs, affordable health care, education, retirement security, corporate accountability and real democracy.  With unions, more low-wage workers can get out of poverty and there’s a stronger middle class.
