Thanks to its long association with the heavily unionized auto industry, Michigan has traditionally been the heart of America’s pro-collective bargaining territory. But after decades of union bosses driving good businesses under, and sending their employees onto unemployment, in 2012 Michigan’s government passed a law giving the state’s employees the Right to Work beginning on March 28, 2013. Since then, the state has been attracting a lot of business. Here’s a sample of some recent wins for Michigan from the National Right to Work Committe:
Right to Work states are always attracting new business, thanks to the benefits they provide. And Michigan’s not missing out on them. Four businesses that are investing in Michigan are Piramal Pharma, MCPc, Pace Industries, and Hollingsworth Logistics. Piramal Pharma and Hollingsworth Logistics are both expanding in their current locations. Meanwhile, MCPc is adding headquarters to Grand Rapids. And lastly, Pace Industries is relocating to Novi. Altogether, these four businesses will create 369 new jobs for the state. So this is just more good news worth sharing!
