Nemo singled out medical services and nursing, in particular among the professions adding to Palm Beach County's union growth. She said workers might be turning to unions in response to downsizing, privatization and large bonuses for top executives. "I don't know what's driving (local union growth), other than the economy is great, and most people aren't really seeing it in their paychecks," she said.
