    AFL-CIO quarrel tests labor direction - DenverPost editorial
    Unions face a demographic threat identified by Harvard union activist Jeff Booth, who notes that labor is losing its appeal to younger workers. 'The highest rates of unionization are among the oldest workers who are closest to retirement - 16.8 percent of 55- to 64-year-olds are in unions. The youngest section of the work force has the lowest percentage of union membership of any age group: only 4.7 percent among 16-24 year olds in 2004 and 10.6 percent among 25-34 year-olds,' Booth reports.
