Middle class should thank labor unions

Published: Tuesday, Dec. 24, 2013 - 10:10 am

Re "Support for unions sours among public" (Page A1, Dec. 13): Given that there would be no American middle class if not for labor unions, upon reading that public opinion polls suggest that unions are declining in popularity, one is reminded of the words of H.L. Mencken: "No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public."
