As AFL-CIO union membership continues to decline, it's trying another tack: creating an army of nonunionized workers to rally support for its causes. Rather than organizing individual workplaces, this program, dubbed "Working America", establishes chapters in various cities with door-to-door recruiting. Dues are voluntary. The main goal: Encourage workers from nonunion companies to push for employee-favored legislation (and collect money from those people to further labor's cause).
