Black Americans Especially Inclined to ‘Vote With Their Feet’ Against Forced Unionism

In the wake of Michigan’s stunning enactment of the 24th state Right to Work law this month, diehard proponents of compulsory unionism are now mounting a desperate bid to sow racial division over such legislation, which prohibits the firing of employees for refusal to pay dues or fees as a condition of employment.[1]

Unfortunately for union propagandists, U.S. Census Bureau data indicate that Americans of all races are “voting with their feet” in vast numbers against compulsory unionism.  This is actually true to an even greater degree of  blacks, the racial group Big Labor propagandists especially like to depict as supposed beneficiaries of monopolistic unionism, than it is of Americans in the aggregate.

From 2000 to 2010, the black population of the U.S. increased by 12.3%, or 4.27 million.  But 70% of the overall increase occurred in the 22 states that had Right to Work laws on the books at the time, even though slightly fewer than half of all black people in America resided in them in 2000.[2]  (Since Indiana and Michigan became the 23rd and 24th Right to Work states, respectively, only this year, they are counted as forced-unionism states in this analysis.)
