The National Institute for Labor Relations Research senior research associate Stan Greer recently published some of his findings at CNSNews. According to Mr. Greer, aggregate employment growth in the 22 states that had still not adopted Right to Work legislation as of the end of last year grew by less than half the Right to Work average.
More from his CNSNews article:
“Right to Work supporters will also have to fight hard to defend some of their recent gains. In Missouri, for example, a Big Labor-instigated ballot measure to wipe off the books the Right to Work law adopted by state lawmakers just last year will come before voters this year on a date that has yet to be determined at this writing.”
“Six states suffered employment losses of at least 1.5 percent from 2007 to 2017. Of these, five are non-Right to Work states, and one became Right to Work only in 2016. Meanwhile, seven of the top nine states for 10-year employment growth are Right to Work states.”
“In addition to being correlated with faster job growth, Right to Work is also correlated with higher real disposable incomes.”
“Six of the seven states with the highest cost of living-adjusted disposable incomes per capita are Right to Work. But eight of the 10 states with the lowest cost of living-adjusted disposable incomes are forced-unionism.”
