ABSTRACT
The article discusses the crisis facing the labor movement in the United States in 1987. The level of unionization among young workers is estimated to be 16 percent. Several factors that contribute to the decline in organized labor are unfair competition from the Japanese, automation, increase in employer resistance and hostility of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). The types of workers who have supported the union movement are also declining. Labor unions have shift their attention to service workers and to the bottom end of the white-collar sector.
