Steve Stanek interviews co-author, Machael Lafaive, from the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, regarding his recent study entitled, “Economic Growth and Right to Work Laws”. The study contains an analysis of the positive economic implications of Right-to-Work Laws, which assert that one cannot be compelled to join or support a union. In the 24 states that have adopted the Right-to-Work Laws, the report finds after accounting for proxy variables, that totally employment, personal income and population increase after a state adopted these laws. The bonus implication of these laws is that an individual’s liberty is maximized by allowing voluntary association.
