Right to Work Helps Oklahoma Economy

A new analysis from the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs shows that since the Sooner State passed a right to work law in 2001—allowing all workers to choose whether or not to join or pay a fee to a union—the state has outpaced the nation in manufacturing job growth. 

At the same time, Oklahoma has become a net winner in state-to-state migration, as more residents moved to Okalahoma from other states than left the state for elsewhere.  This reverses a downward trend Oklahoma had been expericencing prior to 2000.

Naturally, the vast majority of domestic imigrants came from forced unionization states.  Concidentally, Pennsylvania, a forced union, state has been among the biggest losers in state migration for decades.
