In Congressional testimony, Snyder declines to say whether Right to Work creates jobs
Gov. Rick Snyder, testifying today at the U.S. House of Representatives' Education & the Workforce Committee, declined to take a position on whether Right to Work policies create jobs.
Snyder, asked whether he supported adopting Right to Work legislation for Michigan, repeated a long-standing position that the issue is "not on my agenda."

"I don't automatically have an answer," Snyder said.
Instead, Snyder urged politicians to set aside their previous conceptions about Right to Work, which eliminates unions' power to force employees to pay dues.
Some Republicans in Lansing are pushing Right to Work legislation, partly empowered by the success of legislation in Indiana, which is poised to approve the policy.
