Samuel Gompers
  • “The workers of America adhere to voluntary institutions in preference to compulsory systems which are held to be not only impractical but a menace to their rights, welfare and their liberty.”

“ I want to urge devotion to the fundamentals of human liberty the principles of voluntarism.

No lasting gain has ever come from compulsion.”

testimony on right to work
Testimony on Right to Work
  • “…and the fact of the matter is that these clients express a very strong interest in being in Right to Work states as a means to go to a location…
  • “Upon further review and discussion with our clients, approximately 75% of our manufacturing clients express an initial interest in being in a Right to Work state.”
  • “After further discussion with our clients, somewhere around 50% want to retain Right to Work as a pass/fail criteria.”

Mark Sweeney: 2/10/2011 Missouri State Senate

"Right-to-work is vitally important," says Mark Vitner, vice president and senior economist for Wachovia. Right-to-work status enables the companies to have equal leverage [with] the unions."
  • David Brandon, president of The Pathfinders, a Dallas-based consulting firm, says that right-to-work status has become increasingly important for the manufacturing employers for whom he conducts location research.
  • "About 35-to-40 percent of manufacturing enterprises in the automotive industry insist on operating in a right-to-work state. Another 20-to-25 percent say it is a very important factor and will be used as a second- or third-tier factor in site selection. More than half of our companies either make it a threshold or a very important factor in making a decision on where to locate a factory and other operations," he says.
slide34
Businesses are increasingly considering Right to Work as a key competitive criterion when considering sites for new growth and investment.  Almost three-fifths (69.5%) of business executives specify Right to Work as a very important or important factor in site selection according to the Annual Corporate Survey published by Area Development Magazine.
  • A vice president of Fantus told the Greater Twin Falls, Idaho Chamber of Commerce, "Approximately 50 percent of our clients … do not want to consider locations unless they are in right-to-work states. As a result, states that are not right-to-work states, and the communities in them, are eliminated from consideration in the initial phase of the site selection process, no matter how strong other advantages for a facility might be."
slide35
KPMG Business Site Consultant, Chicago:

“For Iowa to be considered (for business development) based on your business climate and tax climate, ‘you better keep your Right to Work law’.”

  • Insight Research Corporation, one of the country’s dominant competitors in corporate relocation research:

reported that 90% of their clients looking to build new facilities and create new jobs will not even consider states that do not have Right to Work laws.

"This issue is also closely followed overseas. Many of our offshore clients are aware of the implications of U.S. right-to-work laws, and the significance of these laws in the site selection decision process has not waned.

“Since January 2011, we’ve created over 62,400 new net jobs, giving us the fourth highest growth rate in the United States. Unemployment in Oklahoma has been reduced by 30 percent, from 7 percent in 2010 to an enviable 5.1 percent today, one of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation. Our median household income rose in 2011 by $4,000 – placing Oklahoma at No. 1 in the country.”

  • INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 4, 2013) – The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) announced today that in 2012 it secured job commitments from 256 companies from across the country and around the world that project to create more than 27,600 new jobs, an increase from 19,080 in 2011 and more than any other year on record.
  • “From its falling corporate tax rate and recently enacted right-to-work legislation… these results are proof that companies find Indiana one of the most attractive places to create jobs,”
governor mitch daniels
Governor Mitch Daniels

“…I may have underestimated the impact, we have had a flood of calls and inquiries, starting literally the day I signed the bill. We began hearing from companies we had not heard from. We\'re keeping a list, because this may be important information for experts in the site selection business at some point

I\'m working right now with an international company that is now specifically considering Indiana, where it wasn\'t previously. Right-to-work has already had an impact."Bob Ady, president Ady International Co.
