Interesting that this story doesn't mention the violence committed by union members, which is on video. And the name isn't misleading, the bill does give EVERYONE the RIGHT TO WORK without paying dues to an organization they don't support. This bill certainly doesn't prohibit anyone from paying dues and I'm sure all the good union members will fall in line and continue paying their dues, right?

Another reason why the GOP gets voted out of office. They don't know how to govern.

Then those non-union members will do the right thing and not take the pay raises the union fights for them. And what a surprise to hear there was Koch brother money behind this. Just how much money do these guys need.

Without unions they would bring back poorhouses and debtor's prisons for old people and I would surely be in one or the other.

For the people that don't know what that means. if you live in a RTW state, you can buy more with your paycheck than those that live in a Non-RTW state.

avejoecon - if the whole economy of a state is depressed, merchants and sellers will lower their prices until they're on the edge of poverty too - try a lesson or two in economics if you have the curiosity about it
