Majorities of Americans consider the decade-long decline in union representation for U.S. workers a bad development, according results of a Pew Research Survey conducted earlier this month.

According to the survey, 56 percent of respondents said large reductions in the percentage of workers represented by unions has been “somewhat” or “very” bad for the country. Fully 60 percent said the development has been bad for workers.

Although the number of unionized workers has risen slightly in recent years, just 10.8 percent of U.S. workers belonged to a union last year, compared to 20 percent in 1983, according to another Pew Center analysis.
