    I would joke that the Philadelphia City Charter does, but it's gotten so sad and corrupt, it's not even funny any more.

    What forces people into a Union is the contractual agreement between the Company and the existing Unionized employees of that Company. The Company agrees that the position is a Union position in the contract and from then on cannot hire non-Union workers to do the job unless those workers join the Union (or at least pay dues).

    My parents worked for the state of Il.

    If you didn't join the union, they took out of your check what was called "Fair share" fee. The idea was that they still, some how, benefited from what the union did. Course, they never mentioned that the union would keep you back if you didn't join.

    When States do not pass laws that forbid Companies making all positions Union only the State is supporting the Unions in forcing Companies and people to do business only with the Union.

    Right to work should be the law of the land. Any Democrat that claims they are for the people and does not support right to work is lying through their teeth.

    You're kidding, right? Don't you know how to use Google? Of course there are places where you have to join a Union. Look it up. Please let us know if you have trouble finding any of the thousands of examples available and we'll help you out.

    In most cases the requirement is CONTRACTUAL between the Company and the Union, not Mandated by law.

    I know that some states have what is called a Right To Work law that gives you the right to work for anyone without having to join a Union, some states don't have this law and if the company has a contract with a Union you have to join to get a job.

    Ahh so that is all a right to work law is huh?

    Bullshit!
    You lose more than you gain with all right to work laws I have seen and lived under.

    and there are open shops and closed shops as far as unions go.
