    It is an interesting article in many areas, but perhaps the most exciting point made is that right-to-work creates an immediate huge decline in union membership when it gets rolled out:


    'In Indiana, where a new right-to-work law took effect last March, the state lost about 56,000 union members. The law prohibits unions from requiring workers to pay union fees, even if they benefit from a collective bargaining agreement. Michigan lawmakers approved a similar measure in December.'

    News from The Associated Press

    Michigan is next. Ohio can't be far behind.

    Let's roll!

    The left fell in love with Unions and tried hard to promote membership. But as all things liberal exactly the opposite happen.

    They still are not doing anything about the unions that are actually far more damaging, public sector unions.

    Without question. Public unions are the big prize.

    Yay, we will create a couple more minimum wage jobs while the vast majority of workers will see their wages decline. Little by little we are destroying the middle class that made this the greatest country on earth.

    What do ?right-to-work? laws do to a state?s economy?

    You leftists are leading the way on that with your refusal to buy the products made by over-compensated Union workers.

    It's funny how people vote liberal with their heads, but conservative with their wallets.
