Radio host Ron Jolly of WTCM recently wrote about right-to-work protections for employees in the Traverse City Business News, explaining that making Michigan a right-to-work state would lure more job creators to the state while allowing unions to continue operating and organizing.

"Labor unions point out that average wages are lower in those RTW states, but the Mackinac Center for Public Policy notes that when you factor in cost of living differences, wages are similar," Jolly wrote.
