Today’s fun fact: Union membership

About one worker out of nine is represented by a union nationwide

In Washington, that number is  close to one worker out of five.

In Idaho, it's closer to one worker out of 20.

This from the latest figures on union membership from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
