Shocker: New Study Shows Union Members Earn More than Non-Union

Categories: Pay

You hate your job. You are poorly paid. You can’t get sick. Obviously you can’t die.

But don’t despair. According to new numbers from folks who like crunching numbers at the Bureau of Labor Statistics, you can get paid more by joining a union.

In 2015, union members made $980 a week while non-union members made only $776.

Study after study has shown that union members have consistently earned more than non-union members.

What else? Unions bring you eight-hour work days, weekends, sick leave, affordable health care, and vacations.

And if you have a union, they can’t move your desk to the basement and tell you to deal with the cockroaches either.
