"A Right to Work law secures the right of employees to decide for themselves whether or not to join or financially support a union. ... The National Right to Work Committee advocates that every individual must have the right, but must not be compelled, to join a labor union." [1]

  • Indiana passed a right-to-work law in February 2012. Previously, Democrat legislators had pulled the stunt of leaving the state in order to block a Republican bill that would have prohibited requiring workers to pay union dues as a condition of employment. [2]
  • Michigan, once a unions stronghold, became the 24th right-to-work state in March 2013 (enacted by the legislature at the end of 2012)
