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.

Want to destroy your state? Adopt liberal laws forcing workers to join a union, and watch businesses and their employees flee for better states.

    Liberals certainly didn’t depopulate California, in fact this state attracts illegals and welfare recipients because they get so much for free.

      yes , but the peoples that pay for those freeloaders are , ( just saying )

    Sounds very reasonable. Why have a business in a state that wants to destroy you?


    Not many business owners eventually come to the conclusion that Henry Ford arrived at, paying his workers a living wage that would allow them to buy the products that they build. If business owners in this country had followed Ford’s example, there’s a good chance that the unions in this country would have been extinct decades ago. Most American workers take pride in their jobs and the company they are working for, Liberal regimes over the years have established outrageous taxing policies that forced these companies to eventually take their jobs to foreign shores where low wage labor pools are in abundance. Labor unions are now on the verge of extinction with only 7% of this country’s jobs unionized. Trump has barely scratched the surface negotiating with various companies to keep many of their jobs here. On January 20th, he will have the ability to expand his efforts to bring back most of our former manufacturing jobs ! That along with building and expanding business partnerships with various countries will do far more to elevate this planet to a previously unachieved level of wealth and prosperity than continuing to dump billions of Taxpayer Dollars into a defense industry that has kept us on a permanent war footing for the last 70 years. This is not Socialist Liberal philosophy, this is essentially economic common sense that benefits all of mankind !

    I would suspect that these liberal unionized states also have higher tax rates for more socialist programs which also forces smart business people to relocate their businesses to the right to work less socialist states.
