Thought for the Week

"From September 15 to October 15, the nation observes Hispanic Heritage Month. We at the EEOC are especially privileged to fight for the rights of Hispanic and Latino Americans. We are making sure that future Hispanic and Latino heroes will never be impeded, stymied, or discouraged from achieving their full potential because of national origin discrimination. Richard Cavazos led raids on enemy positions in war. We, too, must keep tackling the bastions of discrimin­ation, big and small, just as he did – over and over. "

–EEOC Chair Janet Dhillon on Hispanic Heritage Month 2020

Working people have been thwarted in their efforts to bargain for better wages by attacks on unions

  • De-unionization accounts for a sizable share of the growth in inequality between typical workers and workers at the high end of the wage distribution in recent decades—on the order of 13–20% for women and 33–37% for men.
  • On average, a worker covered by a union contract earns 13.2% more than a similar nonunion peer.
  • The share of workers covered by a collective bargaining agreement dropped from 27.0% to 11.7% between 1979 and 2018, meaning the union coverage rate is now less than half where it was 40 years ago.
