The article discusses the financial structure of local labor unions in the state of Wisconsin. The economy of Wisconsin paralleled the national trend generally. There was an increase in employment in the nonagricultural sector of the state from 1.2 million in 1962 to 1.4 million in 1966. There was also an increase in union membership from 400,000 to 448,000 during the same period. As a percentage of the labor force, union membership declined slightly over the period as was generally true of the national economy.
