Republicans keep pushing this “right to work” agenda which is nothing more than the government telling people what kind of things they can put in their own private contracts, involving private money, and the government bureaucrats should keep their hands out of it, but for some reason the Republicans feel that the corporations need extra protection. Now they couch it in “right to work” as if the union was forcing people to join, but isn’t it the Republicans that point out that labor laws are unneeded, for instance if you want contraception covered in your health care you can just work for someone else aren’t they always saying you can quit if you don’t like the wages/conditions/ your boss sleeping with your wife as a condition of empolyment, but woe wait a minute joining a union that’s going too far? Why don’t they just point out that you can work some where else if you don’t want to join the union and work at a union shop. That seems to be in keeping with their “you can always quit" answer to all labor laws, except “right to work” which just helps the 1%, so do we know which party to hate or are we still confused people?
“A "right-to-work" law is a statute that prohibits union security agreements, or agreements between labor unions and employers that govern the extent to which an established union can require employees' membership, payment of union dues, or fees as a condition of employment, either before or after hiring.”
