Unions: Friend or foe to Mississippi workers?

With growth of industry, however, has come the decline of labor unions in the state.

Gov. Phil Bryant has repeatedly touted that Mississippi is a “non-union state.”

When contacted about the article, the governor’s office referred to an excerpt of Bryant’s inaugural address.

“As a right to work state, we have assured workers the freedom from intimidation and interference in their desire to seek economic security by helping them establish not just a job but a career,” the governor said in the speech.
