Low Unionization Rates

Louisiana is a right-to-work state and, as such, enjoys low unionization rates.  Louisiana's average unionization rate is 2.8% lower than the national average.  

Further, the culture of South Louisiana is not conducive to union activity.  The two closest MSAs, New Orleans and Lafayette, both have unionization rates lower than the state average, at 3.1% and 1.9%, respectively.
