    In 2010, only TWO RTW state made it into the top 10 GDP per capita

    FACT

    Those states were Wyoming and Viriginia

    List of U.S. states by GDP - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Upon further inspection we note that only 9 of the 25 states with above average per capita GDP are RTW -

    The remaining 13 of the 22 states with RTW work statutes in 2010 were in the bottom 25 states. 6 of those in the bottom 10.

    Let me break this down for you.

    In 2010-

    Chances your state is in the top 20% of GDP per capita:
    9% if a RTW state, 30% if not a RTW state

    Chances your state is in the top 50% of GDP per capita:
    41% if a RTW state, 59% if not a RTW state

    Chances your state is in the bottom 20% of GDP per capita:
    27% if a RTW state, 15% if not a RTW state


    Its quite clear to me that RTW laws are not only bad for labor, they are BAD for business.
