This paper puts forth arguments regarding the occurrence of state Sunday closing laws and reports statistical estimates that predict the occurrence of those laws in 1970 and 1984. Along with other socio-economic variables, two labor market activities are found to be significant determinants of Blue laws. Membership in labor unions is found to have a positive declining influence on the laws; female labor market participation is found to have a negative but growing influence.
