But let's look at another metric, economic growth.It's easier to grow from a lower base.If you compare household poverty rates: -right to work states: 13.29%-states that allow union shops: 11.24%http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_by_poverty_...Recall that, when Governor Perry was running for POTUS, there was some discussion of how the largest right to work state, Texas, with it's blessings of oil and gas resources, had one of the highest poverty rates, lowest public health rates, highest teen pregnancy rates and one of the lowest high school graduation rates in the country.Having read the two Michigan bills, they at least still allow collective barganing. Eight years ago, as I was constructing the "General Rants", which included a projection for a national "right to work law", I read several of the "right to work laws" in force at that time, and most not only outlawed union shops, they outlawed collective barganing by prohibiting a "third party" negotiating wages and benefits on behalf of an employee.Steve
