    Frederick Douglass died on this date. In an 1857 address Douglass said, “If there is no struggle, there is no progress.

The most recent annual Gallup poll shows unions’ approval rating at 64 percent, while last month’s government tally of union membership shows the share of private-sector workers enrolled in unions to be a meager 6.2 percent—less than 10 percent of the share of Americans who approve of unions.
