Right to Work = Jobs

Dr. Greg Schneider is a Senior Fellow with the Kansas Policy Institute looks at the recent efforts to outlaw Right to Work noting:  From 1999 to 2009, right-to-work states have added 1.5 million private sector jobs for a 3.7 percent increase; states which are not Right-to-Work lost 1.8 million jobs over the same decade, for a decline of 2.3 percent. Some states, like Michigan and Ohio, home of the powerful United Auto Workers Union, have hemorrhaged private sector jobs, declining 17 percent and 10 percent respectively over that time period.

As Schneider has pointed out — if we want to create jobs and get America out of the recession, enactment of a National Right to Work law would be a great step forward.
