Michigan: No Longer Can Afford to Stop Right to Work

David Gillis of the Times Herald newspaper in Port Huron, Michigan has looked at the numbers and concludes Michigan can no longer afford to restrict workers’ Right to Work. Why?

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, in the 22 states that have right-to-work laws, private-sector employment grew 79% faster than in non-right-to-work states in a 10 year period ending in 2005. During this same period of time, real personal income grew by 37% in right-to-work states compared to 26% in those states without these laws.
