Thanks Ron, for asking me to clarify something I wrote earler:
Cequent's intent to move is proof that "Right To Work" (RTW) is a lie. We were told that when RTW passed in Indiana - businesses would flock to the state to open their doors. Businesses do not use this when deciding whether to open a new business.
This is best illustrated by Gordon Lafer, Univ. of Oregon professor. His study demonstarted that in RTW states not only are wages and benefits lower than non-RTW states, but that there are more worker's compensation claims by workers and fewer health and safety protections in place. Furthermore, that businesses use a host of other factors, markets, transporatation, availability of workforce, and resources when deciding where to operate.
RTW was not a factor for Cequent staying in Indiana - it's all about the bottom line. And as they say -- you can take that to the bank.
