Americans are more pro-labor and less favorable toward big business than at any time in the last half-century, according to research cited by two labor researchers writing for The Guardian.

Data also shows that an increasing share of workers would like to belong to a union. While about 11 percent now belong to one, more than 50 percent would vote for one, according to some research.

The publication noted that that support could translate into “a more balanced economy and society” if labor laws, which can favor business, were tilted in workers’ favor, the researchers wrote.

They noted that pro-labor sentiments are emanating not just from the left but also from Republicans.
