Economic Determinants of Voting in an Era of Union Decline

  • Jake Rosenfeld

Abstract

The objective of this article is to test competing hypotheses regarding union vote effects by economic sector. Overlooked in existing research on political participation and the labor movement is de-unionization's sectoral dimension: declining union rolls is a private-sector phenomenon. The sectoral dimension of union decline carries important political consequences if the influence of unions on voter turnout varies by sector.
