History of an anti-worker movement The right-to-work movement emerged in the South in the s, with Arkansas passing the first law in Although advocates sell right-to-work laws as promoting jobs and economic growth, the movement has always been ideological, writes Colorado State University professor Raymond Hogler in a new book, The End of American Labor Unions: He explains that the debate over right to work reflects a division of views—largely rooted in the existence of slavery in the South—about basic notions of community, liberty, freedom and property.

An Economic Policy Institute study found that in right-to-work states, average wages were about 3. Yet no studies conclusively demonstrate that right-to-work laws create more jobs or a more vibrant economy. Surveys of both large corporations and small manufacturers about their location decisions have found that right to-work had little to no bearing—more influential factors included highway accessibility and construction costs.
And although low-wage, right-to-work states had some success in luring manufacturing to the South in the midth century, today such jobs are likely to head overseas from both the North and the South.
