EdStat: In the Five Years After Right-to-Work Reform, Union-Dues Revenue per Teacher Decreased by $316 in Wisconsin

A recent analysis by Bradley D. Marianno and Katharine Strunk shows that, over the course of the five years following right-to-work reform in Wisconsin, union-dues revenue per teacher had decreased by $316 relative to agency-shop states by the end of 2016. These figures suggest that, in states that adopted right-to-work laws, teachers unions lost power not only in numbers, but also in terms of dollar resources.
