Last Sunday, The Grand Rapids Press released a new study on the likely effects of a right-to-work law on Michigan’s economy as part of its ongoing “Michigan 10.0” series. Dr. Hari Singh, an economics professor at Grand Valley State University, wrote the paper, which focused on the automotive industry. Singh’s paper looks over some of the academic literature surrounding the issue, including two Mackinac Center studies.

Right-to-Work allows individual workers to decide whether or not the union in their workplace has earned their support. By allowing workers to withhold support from unions, right-to-work makes unions more responsive to workers and makes states more attractive to businesses, opening up more jobs. The editors at The Grand Rapids Press understand that this issue isn't going away anytime soon.
