He said: “Over 90 percent of the jobs that you’re looking at aren’t going to be in a situation where right to work is even relevant,” - that is, lower wages in Michigan (and other right-to-work states) aren't due to right to work laws, because 1) you probably shouldn't compare wages where there aren't unions (such as professional jobs like lawyer/doctor/upper management); and 2) any measure about wages will be skewed if New York and California are on the other side of the balance. Concluding that Right-to-Work depresses wages because RTW states have lower wages than non RTW states is the height of uncritical thinking.
If you want to attack RTW laws on their merits, do it. But not with lazy infographics. It's a discredit to the party.
Right now it's shorting conservative austerity policies in the UK and in MI.
Time for them to grow up.
So them unions probably forced the Governor's hand in the matter, just to give the little guy a fighting chance!
