I find it interesting that the original purpose (and supposedly still the
purpose) of unions was to get people a decent wage and SAFE working conditions.
Now the government has made a minimum wage and osha so the unions look for
nothing more than power. Lets take for example SAFE working conditions, UAW sees
auto workers fired for drinking and using drugs while on lunch breaks (these are
people making our cars). Do they support their being fired? No they fight for
them to be able to keep doing what they were doing because they were on their
own time. The fact that the alcohol and drugs will still be in them while ON the
job does not matter just the power the union gets. Or how about teamsters
demanding that hostess run two delivery fleets one for cakes and one for breads.
They demanded that they could not deliver cakes and breads to the same store on
the same truck at the same time. So hostess had to send TWO trucks to do the job
of one. This costs money and eventually every hostess job.
Why is it ok to force anyone to pay union dues and make corrupt union bosses
rich in order to work? If a person wants to pay union dues, let him do so!
Anytime a Republican says "This is about freedom, fairness and equality"
don't waste your time listening to the rest. Just vote against it.
Counter Intelligence,"All 50 states should have right-to-work
laws."______________________________First they need to
pitch the misnomer "right to work" law since its actual intent is to
break the back of union leverage. As for being forced to join and pay dues, an
applicant is told up front when it's a closed shop. The decision is then
his or hers to make.
Craig,yes, good is evident, sin't it?
All 50 states should have right-to-work laws.Unions are fine, but
forcing anyone to join them (and then forcing them to pay dues that are forced
into political donations) is unaccpetable
The moment I saw the news headline, I suspected it was a state in which
Republicans control both the legislature and the Governor's office.
