A labor relations act is often as important for the workers who are excluded from coverage as for those who are included. There has always been speculation as to how many workers have been excluded from the coverage of the Wagner Act and how many have been excluded from the coverage of the Taft-Hartley Act. An attempt to arrive at the facts is made in this article.
