Right to Work States 

Updated Analysis: Right to Work States Still Enjoying Faster Growth, Residents Have Higher Purchasing Power

Tthe National Institute for Labor Relations Research has updated its fact sheet comparing various statistics in Right to Work states and forced-unionism states, and Right to Work states continue to enjoy more growth and purchasing power for citizens than their forced-unionism counterparts.

Over the past ten years, private sector employment opportunities in Right to Work states have grown by 6.4%, compared to just 0.4% job growth in states that allow forced unionism. Other economic indicators - from purchasing power to employee compensation - are equally stark. No matter how you slice the numbers, Right to Work states simply perform better than their forced-unionism neighbors.

The case for Right to Work laws has always rested on the importance of employee freedom, but it's nice to know that protecting worker rights has other, more tangible benefits. Over the past several years, studiessurveys, and job reports have all confirmed that freedom in the workplace yields impressive economic results.
