"We're Losing Jobs to Right to Work States"

Right to Work laws mean freedom and jobs, so it is no surprise that the Bowling Greene Daily News laments for Kentucky workers because of its legislature failure to end forced unionism and do the right thing for Kentucky workers: 

Boeing is a huge aerospace corporation that employs directly and indirectly more than 150,000 people and it recently announced that it is searching in the South for sites to build another plant. Unfortunately, Kentucky won’t be in the running because it’s not a right-to-work state.

It sure would have been nice to have been even looked at by Boeing, considering the need for jobs in Kentucky, but wasn’t considered because it isn’t a right-to-work state, unlike most states to the south of us.

People experienced in industrial recruitment will tell you candidly that many companies looking for plant sites eliminate non-right-to-work states right out of the starting gate.

Should it be any surprise that most people prefer choice to compulsion?

If Gov. Steve Beshear and other elected representatives were 100 percent serious about bringing more jobs and businesses to our state, they would give our recruiters all the tools they need.

Statistically, right-to-work states have created jobs faster than states like Kentucky. It is unfortunate many of our political leaders seem oblivious to this reality.

Boeing isn’t going to come to Kentucky, but it sure might have considered it if these politicians we elect would realize the jobs we’re losing to other states and stand up to the union lobby in Frankfort and vote for Kentucky to become a right-to-work state.
