How Unions Help All Workers

How Unions Help All Workers: Unions have a substantial impact on the compensation and work lives of both unionized and nonunionized workers. Unions play a pivotal role in securing and enforcing labor protections such as overtime compensation, family and medical leave, and health and safety regulations. The Briefing Paper, “How Unions Help All Workers,” by Economic Policy Institute President Lawrence Mishel, examines the effect of unions on wages, fringe benefits, total compensation, pay inequality, and workplace protections. Policy briefs on other critical economic issues can be found at the Economic Policy Institute’s web site.
