Burr's Marcel Debruge Featured in Business Alabama

February 13, 2013

Birmingham partner Marcel Debruge was recently interviewed for an article in Business Alabama Magazine on  “The Competitive Edge and Right-To-Work.”

In the February 2013 issue of Business Alabama, Marcel DeBruge, Birmingham partner, was interviewed in the article “The Competitive Edge and Right-To-Work.” The article discusses the importance of Alabama’s right-to-work laws and the increasing competition to attract auto manufacturers to the state.

As more states such as Indiana and Michigan hope to lure in car manufacturers by passing right-to-work laws, DeBruge said the changes in labor laws represent a fracture in the wall between right-to-work and non-right-to-work states. He believes Alabama should continue to be a preferred place to start a  manufacturing operation not only because of its labor laws, but because it’s a state that puts an emphasis on growing business.
