      Unionization may affect wage rates in nonunion labor markets, pushing them upward or downward and creating a bias in the measurement of the union wage advantage. The pure union wage advantage is the amount by which the union wage exceeds the nonunion wage that would exist without the union. This difference is expressed as a percentage (Wu-Wn/Wn. But by the ’80s, the trends for lower-wage workers had been reversed. Families in the higher income groups—the top 20 percent—continued to enjoy steady income gains, adjusted for inflation.

      Reasonable standards can raise median wages by 10 to 15 percent and help it grow with the economy. In other words, wage boards are much better positioned to deliver broad-based gains to middle. This visualization tracks income levels in the UK at different points in the income distributions. Each line shows the cutoff-incomes for the 10 deciles of the income distribution (i.e. 1st shows you the income that separates the poorest 10% from the next 10% in the income distribution).

      Inequality in advanced economies has risen considerably since the s, largely driven by the increase of top earners’ income shares. This column revisits the drivers of inequality, emphasising the role played by changes in labour market institutions. It argues that the decline in union density has been strongly associated with the rise of top income inequality and discusses. Wages and salaries constitute nearly three-fourths of total family income—a share that is even greater for the middle class. Thus, analyses of wage and compensation trends are central to understanding the living standards of American families.
