Articles about right-to-work spawn a lively discussion at TTAC, sometimes with more than 200  comments, interspersed by appeals for selective self censorship. The topic won’t go away. Neither at TTAC, nor in the nation. “Laws that weaken the power of organized labor could spread to more U.S. states in 2013 after supporters of the measures scored a major victory over unions in Michigan this week, and earlier in the year in Indiana,” says a report by Reuters.

“Other states will be emboldened by the passage of the right-to-work law in Michigan. Before the next year is over, we will probably see a majority of states with right to work laws,” said Gary Chaison, industrial relations professor at Clark University’s Graduate School of Management, ” who called the Michigan decision a “catastrophe for unions and a sign of their waning power.”

The report sees “right-to-work” laws spread to neighboring Midwest states of Wisconsin and Ohio, where Republican governors and legislatures  may be wi8lling to take on the unions. Missouri also could stop the “closed-shop” system .

What is driving the process is competition. Businesses, jobs, and tax revenue are seen gravitating to right-to-work states.
