Right to Prosper

So-Called "Right-to-Work"

Corporate Interest Groups Are Pushing So-Called Right-to-Work, Attacking Our Right to Prosper

Working people, unions and allies are mobilizing to stop the spread of the so-called "right-to-work" law, which lowers living standards for workers and threatens collective bargaining. 

Know the facts. So-called Right-to-Work doesn't create jobs. It turns good union jobs into bad jobs.

  • Workers in so-called right-to-work states make about $5,300 less per year.
  • In so-called right-to-work states, fewer are free to join a union, slashing retirement contributions and crippling pensions.
  • You might call it “right-to-work to death” - the workplace death rate is 36 percent higher in so-called right-to-work states.
