Tennessee Among the U.S. States with Weakest Unions

Here’s some interesting data, if you’ve been following all the talk about unions coming out of Wisconsin and elsewhere.

According to the Marketwatch news service, there was a nearly 50 percent drop in union members in Tennessee over the past decade. The total number of workers in Tennessee grew by 90,000, but union members dropped from 211,000 to 115,00.

The drop-off over the decade is “by far the largest of any state.”

“Most of this drop-off in unionized workers occurred in the private sector, which lost more than 90,000 union workers over the decade,” according to Marketwatch. “Today, only 2.2% of private workers are in unions, the second-lowest rate in the country.”
