This is not a comment on the content but the presentation.

Why can't we see the entire article when trying to read on-line?! The article appears in 20 segments (in powerpoint mode)!

Interesting article but I don't know if some will like the conclusions I get. The top states, with the exception of Utah are union states. The bottom states are non-union states. Maybe the reason Utah is part of the top states is because it is not openly hostile to unions and the culture of the state allows for many of the benefits of unions to exist in the job environment, meaning respect for workers, and communication within a company.
