Union Search Statistics In The United States

Union Search Statistics

The current union boom in the US has led to many Americans researching the topic more and more. We have seen 250 Starbucks locations filing petitions to join the newly formed union, Amazon warehouses initiating union votes, and Google Fiber installers coming together to join the Alphabet Workers Union

We used Google Trends Search Data from the past 12 months along with Glimpse to determine how many people are searching for “join union.” While there is a small decrease in the United States, many states saw a very large increase in residents searching for “join union.

We also found that the UK is seeing a boom in interest with an increase of 91% in the past month. Australia has also seen an increase of 42%.
