Right-to-work states dominate American job growth
By Jarrett Skorup | Michigan Capitol Confidential
Since 1990, nearly all of the top 10 states for job growth are right-to-work states, while nearly all of the 10 states with the least amount of job growth are non-right-to-work states.
More broadly, 18 out of the 25 states with the fastest employment growth are right-to-work states while 19 of the 25 states with the slowest growth are non-right-to-work states, according to data from the U.S. Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.
For the past nearly quarter of a century, right-to-work states have averaged job growth at about twice the rate of non-right-to-work states.
