The Mackinac Center for Public Policy, a Michigan-based public policy research and educational institute, is seeking a Director of Labor Policy to promote market-based labor policies that protect worker rights and expand employment opportunities. The Mackinac Center is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization with 35 full-time employees, a fifty-member Board of Scholars, and an annual operating budget of $5 million.
Mackinac Center scholars have contributed to recent labor reforms in Michigan and numerous other states, including Kentucky, Missouri, West Virginia and Wisconsin. This full-time position involves researching, developing and promoting labor reforms through studies, reports, commentaries, public speaking and media relations. Current major thrusts include projects on public sector unions, collective bargaining and right-to-work laws.
Our aim is to advance an American workplace based on voluntary and mutually beneficial interaction between workers and job creators. This workplace will be marked by government neutrality, a spirit of free enterprise and freedom of choice. We seek to accomplish this objective by providing training and research to coalition partners, educating the public about beneficial reforms and fostering free-market labor policy solutions at the state and federal level.
