A new Census Bureau report on the United States population reveals just how devastating forced unionism is to a state’s economy, and how Right to Work is fueling growth.
The figures are a damning conviction of liberal policies.
The report reveals between 2012 and 2016, the national population grew by 2.9 percent. But it’s where the growth took place that has liberals and union bosses fuming.
According to the Census Bureau, eight of the ten fastest-growing states since 2012 are Right to Work states.
Seven of the ten slowest-growing states are Forced Unionism states.
Eighteen states grew faster than the national rate of 2.9 percent. Twelve of those are Right to Work states.
Thirty-two states grew more slowly than the national rate of 2.9 percent. Eighteen of those are Forced Unionism states.
Of the only 12 slow-growing states with Right to Work laws, two, West Virginia and Michigan, only adopted it in the last 19 months.
Of the 32 states with slower growth, five states actually saw their populations decrease. Four of those five are Forced Unionism states.
The sole Right to Work state to lose population over the last four years is West Virginia, who only adopted the law this year. The effects of Right to Work had not yet been recorded.
In all, 22 states had Right to Work laws on the books throughout the entire four year period. There were 24 Forced Unionism states between 2012 and 2016.
Right to Work states grew at a rate of 4.6 percent. Forced Unionism states grew by only 1.9 percent.
