VA Ranks 49th Now

According to this Free Lance-Star article, Virginia now has the second lowest number of Union workers in the country, and it's been on the decline since the early 1990's.

Perhaps we have a declining manufacturing sector where these jobs traditionally are, but no area has a net financial benefit from Union presence as a whole (Detroit, New York, Pittsburgh come to mind). So we can count this on the 'pros' side of the column for economic development attractions.
