Labor Policy Director Paul Kersey is cited in today’s Wall Street Journal in an article about the economic prosperity enjoyed by right-to-work states as compared to non-right-to-work states. Kersey found that the economies of right-to-work states between 2001 and 2006 grew an average of 3.4 percent, compared to 2.6 percent for states without such a law, and job growth in right-to-work states grew 1.2 percent, compared to 0.6 percent in non-right-to-work states.
