Right to work for more.
Despite union boss’ claims passing Right to Work legislation will mean the loss of money for Pennsylvania families, consider these facts:
- In the first 6 months after Indiana became a Right to Work state, the jobs that came there paid on average $3.00 more per hour than previous wages.
- Since passing Right to Work legislation, Oklahoma has seen its average household income grow from $24,410 to $35,268.
- 7 of the 10 highest wage earning states are Right to Work states
- While median income fell by $1,000 nationally from 2001 to 2011, it increased in Oklahoma by $800.
More jobs for Pennsylvanians.
Not just better jobs, but more of them. Consider these facts:
- 75% of those who help corporations relocate say Right to Work is important or very important
- In the first 6 months after passing Right to Work legislation, Indiana saw an increase of 4,500 jobs and a promise of $1.6 billion in capital investment
- The first year after it became a Right to Work state, Oklahoma gained 7,800 jobs and 800 million in capital investment
- From 1990 to 2011, Right to Work states have seen a 42.6% gain in total employment compared to less than a 19% gain (18.8%) in compulsory unionism states like Pennsylvania
Right to Work will bring about better representation for the members of the union, and for Pennsylvania.
- When Right to Work becomes law, union members will have a say in what their leaders do because they will be able to vote with their feet, as they can in most other organizations
- Passing Right to Work will also mean more people will move to Pennsylvania so we will gain back some of the seats we’ve lost in Congress, giving us more of a voice at the federal level
- From 2011 to 2012, the 22 states that had Right to Work laws in place saw an increase of 39,000 union jobs…this compared to non-Right to Work states like PA that lost 390,000 union jobs.
