Sen. Rand Paul issued the following statement regarding Michigan's recently passed right to work legislation.

"I offer my congratulations to the Michigan state legislature on their hard work on and passage of freedom in the workplace legislation, and to Gov. Rick Snyder for signing these bills into law, making Michigan the country's 24th Right to Work state," Sen. Paul said. "No one should be forced to join or pay dues in order to work. Voluntary associations will both preserve worker freedom and allow greater cooperation between employers and employees."

"This is good for Michigan taxpayers who share the goal of more efficient government and lower taxes - and it is just the thing Michigan needs to jumpstart their struggling economy. I support this goal on the national and state level, and look forward to Kentucky joining Michigan in the near future," he continued.
