There are 23 states that have a right to work law and some want to add Michigan to that list. The Washington Post claims that right to work laws would be good for workers in Michigan because they would not be forced to join a union to get a job. NBC claims that right to work laws would create more jobs and help the economy. According to the economist the law was passed and signed by governor Rick Snyder on December 11. CNN has declared Michigan the 24th right to work state. The Oakland press said that even though it passed in December the law will not go into effect until March.
