Unions drive up taxes, costs

Twenty-two U.S. states have Right to Work laws which protect employees from being fired for refusing to join or pay dues or fees to a union. Compared to the 28 states without such legislation, household incomes are higher, the cost of living is 18% lower, and tax freedom day comes 9 days earlier: April 18.

Alas, in Canada tax freedom day is June 11, and right to work laws don't prevail nearly as much. More information on workers' rights in Canada can be found at LabourWatch.
