The U.S. Treasury Department released a report discussing the impact labor unions have on the middle class and the economy. Per the Treasury Department, the report found that “unions play an important role in addressing longstanding challenges faced by the middle class – including stagnant wages, high housing costs, and reduced intergenerational mobility. In doing so, unions contribute to a more robust and resilient economy.”

The 27-page report focuses on all unions, but there are plenty of items within it of interest to signatory contractors including information on wage rates, fringe benefits, union membership demographics, union coverage by occupation, trends and more.
