Women Workers and Unions

Source: John Schmitt and Nicole Woo, Center for Economic and Policy Research, Issue Brief, December 2013

From the abstract:
This issue brief looks at the most recent national data available to examine the impact that being in or represented by a union has on the wages and benefits of women in the paid workforce. Even after controlling for factors such as age, race, industry, educational attainment and state of residence, the data show a substantial boost in pay and benefits for female workers in unions relative to their non-union counterparts. The effect is particularly strong for women with lower levels of formal education.
