Low-Skilled Worker Sectors More Susceptible to Unionization
Industries will relatively low-skilled workers are more susceptible to employee unionization.
Which industries are most susceptible to the risk of unionization?
 

Lane W. Imberman, Imberman and DeForest, Inc.
It is important to emphasize that the real reason most employees seek out unionization is not wages and benefits, but a belief that they are somehow being unfairly treated, discriminated against, not listened to, and ignored. Thus, the most susceptible industries are those with relatively low-skilled employees. Managements spend little time investing in training and efforts to involve such employees in building a high morale team of workers. Unions have also targeted minority workers.
