Still don’t think Right to Work matters for jobs and economic growth?

Still don’t think Right to Work matters for job growth and site selectors (identifiable info has been removed, but if you are a site selector, preferably in New Mexico, I’d be happy to put you in touch with the site selector). You can email us at:  I received the following email recently:

Hello Paul:

I hope this finds you well. I enjoy following your tweets about New Mexico’s long overdue move towards Right-to-Work.

My firm is representing a major consumer goods client (non-food) planning to establish a new U.S. distribution center in the Southwest. Occupancy requirements for this project are in the 300,000 to 500,000 sq. ft. range, with excellent highway access. Preferred clear height requirements are in the 40 to 50 ft. range and preferred column spacing is 25 ft. minimum.

Rail is not required. Staffing would include about 100 hourly workers at startup, growing over time to as many as 300. Again, the client is interested in buying, not leasing.

The client has expressed an interest in exploring options in New Mexico – BUT only in a county with a Right-to-Work status ( Sandoval County) or in a county that will soon have such a status.

I know this is beyond your usual purview, but maybe you are aware of some warehouses that would fit this criteria and could be a good point of contact for us moving forward. Of course, we plan to contact local economic development officials – but you came to mind as a good resource for us given your broad knowledge on Right-to-Work and insights and connections to the state industrial market.

Please let me know if anything comes to mind once you digest all of this.

Thank you Paul and I look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,
