UM: Right to Work

The Detroit Free Press looks at the reasons behind Michigan’s right-to-work legislation, and the possible fallout if the legislation is signed into law next week by Gov. Rick Snyder. The article quotes Roland Zullo of the University of Michigan’s Institute for Research on Labor, Employment and the Economy: “I think that unions are embattled institutions. In Michigan, and the Midwest in general over the past decade, we have seen a huge decline in the number of manufacturing jobs. A lot of those were good union jobs.” [Source]
