    Hate to tell u (not really) but these jobs were coming here long before Right to Work. I work at Flat Rock Assembly where the new Fusions will be built and most of these jobs are going to be in michigan they have been expanding the plant for a year now. In short Right-To-Work has nothing to do with it Ford only hires union works.
