"The right-to-work states are creating a lot more jobs today than the heavily unionized states." "We rate this claim True." PolitiFact.com PolitiFact is a project of the St. Petersburg Times and claims it seeks to "find the truth" in politics. It has been accused of a liberal bent but did win a Pulitzer Prize in 2009. That's why it's significant that they have examined claims by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich that Right To Work states are creating more jobs than compulsory-unionism states: As we knew, and PolitiFact confirms, 'more jobs are being created in Right To Work states' is a fact: Former Georgia congressman Newt Gingrich made a claim during last week’s CNN debate of Republican presidential candidates that was like red meat to conservatives who complain that government is trying to force employees to join unions. "The right-to-work states are creating a lot more jobs today than the heavily unionized states," said Gingrich, the former U.S. House Speaker who now lives in Virginia.
