Michigan earns a C in Worker Freedom

Rumors are swirling about the possibility of a right-to-work ballot initiative coming to light on Michigan’s ballot as early as next year. If such an initiative passed, workers would have the right to refuse to join a union if they choose to do so. Currently, twenty-two states have passed similar amendments.

The Alliance for Worker Freedom is set to release its 2007 Index of Worker Freedom, which measures the level of worker freedom based on several variables including the existence of a right-to-work law, union density and paycheck protection. To be sure, Michigan isn’t at the top of the list; it receives a score of 3/10, earning it a “C” grade. The report will be available shortly on the website for the Alliance for Worker Freedom.
