As previously reported on this blog, several counties in Kentucky recently passed their own Right-to-Work laws that prohibit companies and unions within their borders from requiring union dues as a condition of employment. In just a few short months, one of those counties, who previously was losing out on opportunities to attract more jobs, already seems to be seeing benefits from its new law in the form of job creation. As the article below describes, since the passage of the law, the county already has been selected by three different companies as a location for new operations.
