My article on how right-to-work won in Michigan is in the new National Review:

The Michigan GOP had moved with startling speed to deliver a surprise victory against union power in what is probably the state most associated with Big Labor. Yet none of it would have been possible without a struggle that stretched back a generation, to a time when the idea of protecting Michigan’s workers from mandatory union membership seemed charmingly quixotic at best and a distracting fantasy at worst. Today, as conservatives plot their comeback from a painful defeat, the story of how right-to-work came to Michigan may provide an important lesson in how principle, planning, and patience can pay off.
