Mackinac’s Vernuccio Discusses Recent Right-to-Work Victories

Vinnie Vernuccio, the director of labor policy at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, took some time to talk with National Review about the recent legal and legislative wins by right-to-work advocates, including this week’s decision in Michigan.
