With states across the country finding that benefits for public workers are becoming nearly impossible to fund in the current economic climate, support for public employee unions has fallen.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 45% of Americans now at least somewhat favor unions for public employees, while the identical number (45%) are opposed to them. These findings include 21% who Strongly Favor such unions versus 30% who are Strongly Opposed to them. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
In May of last year, 53% of Adults favored unions for public employees, while 37% opposed them.
By comparison, 51% now at least somewhat favor unions for private sector workers, with just 39% opposed.
