From the abstract:
This report examines 30 years of unionization and income data to examine the impact of union decline on the mobility of Canada’s middle class. The resulting findings contribute a new addition to our understanding of middle class economics, and reveal that unionization is not just about a wage premium — it affects workers’ location along the middle spectrum of the income ladder.
