RIGHT TO WORK FOR LESS: Caterpillar has found a cheaper home in North Little Rock than in Illinois.
  • RIGHT TO WORK FOR LESS: Caterpillar has found a cheaper home in North Little Rock, in part thanks to the state's anti-union "right to work" law, than in Illinois.

Interesting article on Caterpillar, the big equipment manufacturer, which is squeezing union workers in Illinois for a six-year wage freeze even as its profits hit a record.

And if they can't force a deal with unions in Illinois, CAT can always move another production line to Arkansas.
