Whenever Republican Governor Bruce Rauner and his legislative supporters (like Ron Sandack) talk up their Turnaround Agenda of low corporate taxes and right-to-work, they love talking about how great Indiana is.
If you love having the right to collective bargaining taken away and shitty wages, Indiana is the place.
Crain’s reports that with Republican’s Mitch Daniels and Mike Pence as governors, Indiana has the lowest wages of any state in the mid west.
Illinois has the highest.
Low wages are what Rauner, Pence and Trump call a “business-friendly climate.”
Of course low wages are business friendly. Unless the business wants to have customers who earn enough money to buy things.
One of the reason’s wages are low is that Mike Pence’s Indiana is a Right-to-Work state.
Oneof the reasons Illinois’ wages are the highest in the mid west is that Illinois is a union state.
That’s how it works.
