Know the facts. So-called Right-to-Work doesn't create jobs. It turns good union jobs into bad jobs.

  • Workers in so-called right-to-work states make about $5,300 less per year.
  • In so-called right-to-work states, fewer are free to join a union, slashing retirement contributions and crippling pensions.
  • You might call it “right-to-work to death” - the workplace death rate is 36 percent higher in so-called right-to-work states.

Extremists in Michigan are trying to bust your Union! Despite its misleading title, so-called “Right to Work” laws do not guarantee anyone gainful employment and does not protect workers. In fact, “Right to Work” does the opposite! Workers in “Right to Work” states earn significantly less than workers in free bargaining states, workers have less health care in “Right to Work” states, and “Right to Work” states have a nearly 55% higher fatality rate on job sites. “Right to Work” is wrong for Michigan and wrong for Union Laborers and their families.
