Dick Meister, a San Fransisco-based freelance writer, has some excellent articles about labor. He writes, “Women are well on the way to overtaking men in the ranks of organized labor — and for good reason. As a new study shows, women who’ve joined unions have significantly better pay and benefits than working women who have not joined.

Although only about a fifth of women workers overall currently belong to unions, they already make up about 45 percent of all unionized workers. They’re expected to become a majority within a dozen years, according to the study by the Center for Economic and Policy Research.”
