Republican Anti-Union Efforts Made a Difference on Election Day 

Alex Rowell and David Madland: “As election results rolled in the night of November 8, it became clearer and clearer that the Democratic ‘firewall’ in the Midwest might not hold. While the Democratic presidential nominee had consistently won the popular votes in Wisconsin and Michigan since 1988 and 1992, respectively, Republican nominee Donald Trump would finish the night by narrowly winning both states. There are several reasons for these Democratic losses, but one major contributor is clear: successful Republican efforts to damage unions.”

“These attacks on unions do not just lower workers’ wages and help business interests. They also change the way the political process works, especially for people with lower incomes and less education.”
