Forced-labor Unionism Penciled Out

We don't need no stinkin' worker-choice
Here's a comparison of right-to-work states vs. forced-labor unionism states for real economic growth in 2009:

Right-to-work states: -1.66%
Forced-labor unionism states: -2.42%
All states: -2.14%

In other words, the decline in economic growth in forced-labor unionism states (-2.42%) was 0.76% worse in 2009 than the decline in right-to-work states (-1.66%).

Further, of the ten states that experienced positive growth in 2009, only two were forced unionism states (Alaska and W. Virginia) and eight were right-to-work states (Nebraska, N. Dakota, S. Dakota, Arkansas, Louisiana, Virginia, Oklahoma and Wyoming).

The three top states with the highest growth in 2009 were all right-to-work states: Oklahoma (6.6%), Wyoming (5.4%) and North Dakota (3.9%).
