Question description

3) More than a third of the U.S. Labor Force was unionized in the mid-1950s. By 2011, union membership had declined to slightly more than 10%, a 70-year low.

According to the Pew Research Center, while overall 64% of Americans believe unions are necessary to protect the working person, 57% agree that "labor unions have too much power."
