New Jobs New Mexico
Right-to-Work Is Right for Us!
All workers should be free to choose whether union representation is worth part of their paycheck. Yet in New Mexico, too many are forced to pay union dues as a condition of employment.
- From 2001 to 2011, right-to-work states added 1.7 million jobs while forced-union states lost 2 million jobs.1
- The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that right-to-work states enjoyed more than twice the job-growth rate of non-right-to-work states between 2007 and 2017.2
- When unions can’t force workers to pay dues for membership they don’t want, they have to better serve their members to keep them. States have seen union membership increase after passing right-to-work laws.3
Numerous counties in New Mexico — such as Sandoval, Otero, Eddy, Lincoln, San Juan — have passed right-to-work ordinances. But every single county should stand up for its workers and join this positive trend.
