"Gallup has been tracking the favorability of unions for decades, and it's been steadily rising since the recession ended."

"Membership in labor unions in the U.S. may be on a long, downward slide, but the share of Americans who view unions favorably*continues to increase.

Sixty-four percent of people polled by Gallup earlier this month approve of labor unions, one of the highest rates in half a century. Americans have not viewed unions in such a positive light since 2003, when the rate hit 65%.

Gallup has been tracking the publicís feelings about unions since the 1930s. After bottoming out in 2009 at an approval rating of 48% ― the lowest on record ― their favorability has increased steadily over the past decade, as the economy has been on the rise."
