Labor unions have been on the decline for several decades, but lately there has been uptick in interest. Workers are feeling more powerful during the Great Resignation and the corporate battle to find new employees. Many employees feel there have been inequities embedded in corporate America and income inequality is real. Over the past three years, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 500 had added new members like the Maryland Institute College of Art, Howard University and the Democratic National Committee. Employees at Starbucks have moved to organize unions after working conditions worsened during the pandemic. Some think Starbucks has closed several locations due to employee organizers, but Starbucks corporate claimed these locations were in dangerous neighborhoods and were not profitable. These labor union movements have grown in many industries or schools that are not suitable for employee ownership through an ESOP, but some workers should look at an ESOP to help meet their goals.
