White-Collar, Blue-Collar, and Gig Workers: What Is The Future of American Labor?

Steven Greenhouse, an award-winning journalist who spent nearly 20 years covering labor and workplace for The New York Times, explains the evolution of the labor movement — and how workers can seize power in a changing economy.

Despite low unemployment rates and a steady growth of new private-sector jobs, it can be argued that workers and organized labor are in their worst state since the early 1930s. Today’s average wage has the same purchasing power as it did 40 years ago and, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2018, only 10.5 percent of wage and salary workers belonged to unions.
