According to a recent Rio Grande Foundation report (download here), New Mexico could see more than 42,000 jobs created between now and 2020 with the adoption of Right to Work legislation? Mix will explain what such a law does (and doesn’t do) and why states like Indiana and Oklahoma have adopted such laws (and why other states are considering them).
Under the leadership of Mr. Mix, the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation has continued to provide unparalleled free legal assistance to workers and has utilized cutting-edge legal strategies to protect workers from the abuses of compulsory unionism.
