In 2018 the nation’s population grew 50% faster than California

Below are the top ten states in their PERCENT of population growth this past year.  Economics seems to play a major role in this growth.

The top five states are all “right to work” states — eight of the top ten.  Consider that 27 of the 50 states are right to work states.  One “top ten” fast growing state that is NOT a right to work state is Washington — but it has zero state income tax.   Only Colorado is growing without a strong economic advantage.  Must be that Rocky Mountain high.

Academics have correctly pointed out that the right to work law in itself may not be the driving force in a state’s growth.  But these researchers also point out that such states all have a more business friendly climate than do the non-right to work states. In other words, “right to work” is a good indicator that the state likes businesses.

California?  As a very anti-business state, the CA population grew 0.4%. The national average is 0.6% — 50% higher than California.

BTW, four of the BOTTOM five states are labor union-controlled states.  They have no right to work laws.

Oddly enough.
