BLUE COLLAR WORKERS HAPPY, BUT MAJORITY OF AMERICANS APPROVE OF LABOR UNIONS

A recent Harris Poll reports that 85% of blue-collar workers believe their lives are heading in the right direction, higher than any similar poll in the last 20 years.  Approximately 86% are “satisfied” with their jobs and 90% are even “proud” of their work.  Ironically, it turns out that blue collar workers are some of the most satisfied people in American society.  These results may explain why President Trump polls better among blue collar workers than the general population.

At the same time, however, a separate poll conducted by Gallup reported in late August, 62% of Americans approve of labor unions, the highest level in 15 years.  The support is strongest among those age 18-34, and nearly 40% of Americans would like unions to have more influence, compared to 29% in 2012.
