An Op-Ed that appeared in both The Hammond Times and Evansville Courier-Press today cites a Mackinac Center scholar and a Center study.
The Op-Ed says that Richard Vedder, an adjunct scholar with the Center and a professor of economics at Ohio University, testified before the Indiana General Assembly last week that “right-to-work states have higher rates of employment, productivity and personal income growth.”
The Center’s 2002 study, “The Effect of Right-to-Work Laws on Economic Development,” was also cited regarding the greater accountability that right-to-work has on unions.
