This was after a Michigan legislature gave the workers the right to get their union contact benefits with no pay to the unions in terms of union dues or service fees to enhance the daily running of the unions (Leon 1). This law gave the workers the right to decide whether to join any union or not. Moreover, the law gave workers the freedom to assemble and formulate their own organization’s rules and regulations.

Effects of Right to Work on Wages
Rinz carried out a research on “The Effects of “Right to Work” Laws on Wages” basing his argument on Taft-Hartle Act of 1947 and found that the right to work laws had little if any effect on thewages (Rinz 7).

In addition, unionized sectors were more likely to experience the negative effects on wages as a result of the adoption of right to work laws. Employees in the private sector of nations that had adopted the right to work policies were also found to be earning 9.8% less in comparison with their colleagues in states that hadn’t adopted the laws (Shah & Casselman 1). In the mean time, factory workers in nations that had adopted the laws were found to be earning 7.4% less than their colleagues within nations which hadn’t adopted the laws.
