&amp;lt;!–:en–&amp;gt;INDIANA BECOME FIRST RIGHT-TO-WORK STATE IN INDUSTRIAL MIDWEST&amp;lt;!–:–&amp;gt;February 2, 2012
As expected right before the Super Bowl to be played in Indianapolis this coming Sunday, yesterday marked the day that Indiana became the Industrial Midwest’s first right-to-work state. With the Indiana Governor’s signature, Indiana became the 23rd right-to-work state in the U.S. The new law prohibits union labor contracts from requiring workers to pay union dues.
With the right-to-work now decided in Indiana, neighboring states to Indiana are in discussion as well. In Michigan, some Republicans are seeking similar legislation. In addition, in Ohio a conservative coalition wants to place a right-to-work amendment on the November ballot . 02.02.2012
