Forced Unionism Costs Everybody
In a report published by the National Institute for Labor Relations Research, researcher Stan Greer makes the case that citizens in forced unionism states have a higher cost of living than Right to Work states. All states teachers and school employees are governed by the laws of their states.
Early last week, the Jefferson City-based Missouri Economic Research and Information Center (MERIC), a state government agency, published its latest set of state comparative cost-of-living indices. (See the link below.)
MERIC’s new indices estimate the average annual cost of living in 2016 for each state. The National Institute for Labor Relations Research has now used these data to calculate average annual costs of living for Right to Work and for forced-unionism states.
