#51. South Carolina

- Employed population: 2.1 million

- Members of unions: 47,000 (2.2% of employed population)

- Workers represented by unions: 59,000 (2.7% of employed population)

No stranger to the bottom of the list, South Carolina once again takes the title of America’s least unionized state. The state’s workforce is growing quickly and union membership is not. Its 47,000 current union members represent a decline of 14.5% over last year alone.
