New page added: New Mexico Union Grocery Store Locations

There's one near you. Shop there.

Union density reached a peak in the US in the post World War II era at 35 percent. A little over one in three jobs was union. But after Ronald Reagan declared war on unions by firing the air traffic controllers union density has steadily fallen until it's now at 11 percent.

Unions increase living standards for all workers and were the primary reason that the US Working Class, which includes the so-called Middle Class, achieved the highest standard of living in the history of the world in the post war era, but that standard of living is in decline.

We can support unions by demanding that our elected officials abandon the Neoliberal economic model, by passing the Employee Free Choice Act to remove many of the legal barriers to union organizing, by buying goods with the union label and by shopping at the places where union members work.
