Labor Unions where a major factor in the workforce and the primary goal of the union was to advocate on the behalf of the workers in specific industries and professions. The Unions in America are aligned with AFL-CIO (American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations) or the Change to Win Federation which removed itself from the AFL-CIO in 2005 (AFL-CIO). The efforts and support of a group of advocates fighting for equal benefits and wages within a specific trade or profession place a sense of responsibility on the organizations.
The unions traditionally were based on supporting the male dominated trades and professions, and the disparity of wage gaps between women and men remains a problem today. The private sector union are regulated by the NLRA (National Labor Relations Act) which was established in 1935 and has been amended to meet requirements of todays labor market.
Regulatory guidance or statues implemented does not have the immediate affect as a labor union as the regulation as generalized in nature and allows the industry or organization the option to implement the change. Congress passed the Equal Pay Act of 1963 to ensure women were not discriminated against for pay while working in the same position as a male, and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed by Congress to prohibit discrimination for race, sex or nationality, but only 42 of 50 states have equal pay laws (NCSL, 2022).

Labor unions are the better options to close the wage gap as the impact in the 1930’s was an example of how strong member unification has on businesses.
