Unions will continue to decline unless they can get back to what they did back in early America; when they protected employees from employers exploiting workers and improved the working conditions for employees when people had very few rights.  According to a Digital Access to Scholarship at Harvard (DASH) article: What we know from past union growth spurts is that to meet the needs of workers in a crisis unions have to reinvent their structures, strategies, and tactics. If unions have a future in the US, they will not be your parents’ or grandparents’ union movement but one that fits today’s Internet-based society, global economy, and financial world. Unions are searching for new forms to carry out their historic function of representing the interests of workers. If they find one that succeeds, they have the potential to rebuild themselves as a vibrant social force. If they fail, employees outside of the union movement, social entrepreneurs or even managers concerned about worker well-being, may find a way to rebuild labor’s voice in the US economy Digital Access to Scholarship at Harvard (p9. DASH).
