Right To Work

Arizona is a right to work state and its constitution states that “No person shall be denied the opportunity to obtain or retain employment because of non-membership in a labor organization, nor shall the State or any subdivision thereof, or any corporation, individual or association of any kind enter into any agreement, written or oral, which excludes any person from employment or continuation of employment because of non-membership in a labor organization.” (Article XXV).

Other areas in Arizona also posted not so high unemployment rate: The Tuscon metropolitan area registers 7.5% and the Flagstaff metropolitan area at 8.0%.
