Better watch out Illinois and Michigan and Ohio!

I don't know that a political powergrab is democracy at work.

And no, I don't oppose or really care about Right to Work. I'm just glad it is over.

What you are going to see is manufacturing jobs not manifesting themselves to hoosier workers.

Still if a manufacturer relocates from Illinois to Indiana which is where a good chunk will come from they are still employed in Indiana and pay Indiana taxes.
However since Illinois has a higher tax rate at 5% it makes more sense just to move to Indiana with the job otherwise your paying 8.4% income tax and high property taxes since Illinois doesn't have a cap well Indiana has it at 1%. Best of all Chicago has one of the highest sales tax rates in the country and Crook County contiunes to shoot itself in the foot.
This is a major weapon we have against Illinois and knowing Chicago/Crook County and Illinois they won't pass RTW so now they will get slapped by job losses.
Oh well Corruption has a Price.

I will admit logistically, Indianapolis isn't some slouch but still lags behind Chicago when it comes to logistics. Unless said company moves right over the border, the savings would be minimal esp. if a company moves to somewhere in central Indiana and have to truck up to Burns or Indiana Harbor. They might as well stay in Illinois if they have to do that.

Na with the Gary Chicago airport coming up soon cargo can be routed around chicago and flown out of that airport and as you said shipped out of Burns Harbor so you can avoid all the Illinois taxes right there.
Don't forget that investment Msam
Both Northwest Indiana will benefit and Indianapolis.
If your tired of being part of the chicagoland of corruption they will choose Indianapolis.
If they still want to be close to Chicago but want a much lower cost of living and tax cost and now RTW protection then they will choose Northwest Indiana.
either or benefits the state so i am happy regardless. Also since Indianapolis has a lower cost of living than even Northwest Indiana they could take that into consideration too. Housing is very affordable in Indy and logistics is growing fast with the Fed EX operations here at Indianapolis International airport and all the interstates going in different directions. A True Crossroads of America and soon I-69 will be built
