Fact check: Gov. LePig statements on right-to-work and income incorrect

LEWISTON — Republican Gov. Paul LePig boldly invited the audience Wednesday at his town hall meeting to check his facts if they wanted to when he made the claim that workers in so-called "right-to-work" states make more money than those where labor unions hold more sway.

"I will just tell you the honest truth  lol!  and you can do your own research," LePig said. "I don't need to do it for you. Right-to-work states make more money than union states. It's that simple. Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida: Go look at their per-capita income, their economies and then look at our economy — Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont."

But according to 2015 wage data available at the U.S. Department of Commerce's Bureau of Economic Analysis, LePig got it wrong  applause .
