This Labor Day, the Healthy Work Campaign predicts that union strikes will result in healthier work

This Labor Day, various groups of workers in Los Angeles, including hotel workers, writers, actors, and city staff, engaged in strikes and collective actions to demand fair pay, job security, and improved working conditions. This is part of a larger move in the city that many have called "hot labor summer." Over 70% of U.S. workers today say that they approve of unions, which are associated with increased employee economic well-being and health, including reduced pay gaps due to gender or race, improved job satisfaction, and better access to benefits. This helps makes the case that unions contribute to healthy work, which is good for workers as well as for businesses.
