“There’s been a lot of work on racial disparities and wealth inequality,” [Cherrie] says. “There’s also been work on extended family wealth. My research brings those together to look at how racial difference and wealth across your extended family can impact your ability to become a homeowner.

“There is a body of research which shows that unions, in general, are an important tool in combating racial wage inequality,” said Bucknor. “The deunionization that we have witnessed over the past thirty years has in turn contributed to rising wage inequality. Therefore, any further decline in unions, especially in the public sector, is likely to have a disproportionate impact on Black workers and further contribute to rising wage inequality.”

However, whatever income tax cuts he may propose for the lower brackets would likely have little impact on the total tax paid by working-class people. That’s because an amazing 89 percent of households pay more Social Security and Medicare tax than federal income tax, according to Cherrie Bucknor of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, who researched this at my request.

Cities with the strongest unions
USA Today, September 5, 2016

Black Workers, Unions, and Inequality, a study published this August by the Center for Economic and Policy Research, found that largely because black workers are more likely to be unionized than any other race or ethnicity, the decline in unionization has contributed to overall wage inequality. The report argues that attacking unions can have a disproportionately large impact on black Americans. Not only do black workers benefit more than most workers from union membership, but also the states in which union membership is declining the most are primarily in the southern U.S., where a disproportionately large share of black Americans live.

Fewer Unions, Lower Pay for Everybody
The Atlantic, August 30, 2016

The presence of unions can help bridge other persistent economic gaps too. In a paper published by the Center for Economic and Policy Research, Cherrie Bucknor looks at the wages of black workers, who are more likely to be unionized than white workers. Today 14.2 percent of black workers are represented by a union, down from 31.7 percent in 1983. But that’s still higher than the share of all workers who are unionized; that number is just 12.3 percent, down from 23.3 percent in 1983.

Why Raising The Social Security Retirement Age Could Hit Latinos Hardest
Huffington Post, March 25, 2016

A new study showing that more than four in 10 older workers are employed in physically stressful occupations or work environments gives fresh ammunition to critics of raising the Social Security retirement age…“These data indicate that many workers would face serious hardship by working later into their life” if policymakers raise the Social Security retirement age, wrote the report’s authors, Cherrie Bucknor and Dean Baker.

The Atlantic, September 3, 2015

The paper’s author, Cherrie Bucknor, who tracked the median hourly earnings of young adults ages 25 to 34 between 1979 and 2014, found that though racial groups follow the same general pattern of wage growth and contraction over the years, the gains are smaller and the declines larger for black men. In fact, between 1979 and 2014, the wage gap between black and white men has actually increased—from about $3.90 to around $5.27.
