Abstract:

In the last year, the Saskatchewan Party, the Ontario Progressive Conservatives and the Wild Rose Alliance in Alberta have proposed adopting U.S.-style "Right to Work" laws. These laws are intended to make it harder for workers to organize and bargain collectively. In the United States, those who have seen how they work call them "Right to Work for less" laws. In spite of all the rhetoric from supporters, there is no credible evidence to support claims that Right to Work laws create jobs. There are a large number of factors that affect economic performance, ranging from workforce training to public services to infrastructure to the development of natural resources. Based on the studies that try to separate the impact of Right to Work laws from other factors, these laws do not increase economic growth. What Right to Work laws do is reduce wages, pensions and benefits. This is the real motivation behind the push for these laws.
