The Enormous Impact of Eroded Collective Bargaining on Wages

Economic Policy Institute - Wikipedia

A major factor depressing wage growth for middle earners and driving the growth of wage inequality over the last four decades has been the erosion of collective bargaining. The share of workers covered by a collective bargaining agreement fell from 27.0% in 1979 to just 11.6% in 2019. Rebuilding collective bargaining is a necessary component of any policy agenda to reestablish robust wage growth for the vast majority of workers in the United States, and broader unionization would lessen racial inequities and benefit women as much as men. Read More ➔

We are sunsetting IATSEcares.org

In March 2020, COVID-19 upended the entire entertainment industry and so many of our lives. During the uncertainty, IATSE, the ‘union behind entertainment’, launched IATSE C.A.R.E.S. to support its membership as the crisis proliferated.

Thankfuklly, we’ve come a long way since that time. While we are no longer supporting grocery deliveries or check-in calls, we will leave IATSEcares.org intact for historical purposes. We want to thank every volunteer who participated when other members needed them most.
