New Report: The 10 ‘Worst’ States For Workers Are ‘Right-To-Work (For Less)’, While The 10 Best ‘Are Not’
If you are looking for the best states for Workers, steer clear of Right-To-Work (for less) states, says a new study.
The Oxfam America report reveals that the 10 worst states to work in America are the following, which are all Right-To-Work: Louisiana, Tennessee, North Dakota, Idaho, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Virginia.
And the 10 best, none of which are Right-To-Work are the District of Columbia, California, Washington, Massachusetts, Maine, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Connecticut, and Minnesota.
Oxfam relied on three indicators for their rankings: Wage Standards, Worker Protection, and the right to organize.
Oxfam also notes that “good ratings on Labor Policies definitely relate to positive economic and health indicators.”
“For example, states with higher scores have longer life expectancy and lower infant mortality rates,” the report said.
