"right to work" is nothing more than a race to the bottom. The real reason business wants "right to work" is because even though big business out spends unions at least 10 to 1 during elections they want to be able to buy their government with no interference from the masses.

It didn't work in the last election and it wont work now. The law in Michigan will eventually be overturned and the ones who voted for it will be tossed aside.

The teabagger/republican war against the masses has failed because they can't accept that they lost so they'll be mean spirited pricks instead. Every time they pull crap like this they lose the real Republicans that were interested in moving America forward which is why all that is left are the defective and irrelevant.

Ok...for the record. This is a plea for an intelligent discussion. Could someone please explain "Right to work" for the masses, why does it benefit employees and why do 35 states already have it.

Why did our state governments suspend "right to work" and allow employers and unions to agree to a "closed shop" and force employees to pay union dues?

Then please explain why employees should not be allowed "Right to work".

We want to know, and we want to know what the benefits are. We have the right to know this in order to make an informed decision. Let's hear it.

The same reasons the Tax man confiscates your possessions in America "At Will".
It's a Free Country "to do what you are told"
This alleged "Right to Work " mentality runs along the same of thought processes as Legalized Slavery

What's wrong with a man standing on his own two feet, people?

Right to work does that - without having some blood-sucking union boss siphoning cash from your paycheck.

Unions are passe in this country... Pretty soon the only ones left to beat the impotent union drum will be the cry-baby teachers... oh...oh... don't criticize them... they CARE about our kids... HA! HA! HA!

I have lived in a right to work state and have relatives living in another. They both have something in common, very low wages and no benefits. But when we discussed this before two dbag rescumlicans posted that wasn't true. It's dead on the poorest states with some of the highest unemployment are right to work and at will states. People's wages in states are based on an average of comparables based on local wages. Union and nonunion wages will now plummet. These rescumlicans are going to cause bloody conflicts by messing with people's livelihood.

Yep, gotta pay Union dues that go to political parties. Just think if that money went into a retirement fund, and if the Execs of the Union, made the same wages as its members, or the expenses they claim for working for you. Yep a good way to spend YOUR Money.

If the quality of your work demands a higher pay then you get it. If you are just a Union Thug, or one who does the minimum, then you get paid the minimum.

Why are there Communistic terms associated with the Union? Can anyone explain that?
In South Carolina BMW pays well and they pay no union.

I'm judging you based on the plentitude of evidence of your ignorance, ulistenup, whereas you are categorically denouncing teachers as horrible people.

Except of course the ones who gave up their lives for children. You knew they were heroes before they became heroes, though, I'm sure.

Remember this: If unions loose their bargining rights and power for example to wages, the lower wage the unions make, The non union wages will become even lower. Your work place enviornments will be worse. why. because they can. My cousin worked in High Point NC, a right to work state. One week, he's at 38 hrs. Next week, 8Hrs. Very Inconsistant work hours and rules. When he questioned this form of work place scheduling, he was told that if he didnt like it, go back north. He did, and found a decent paying job! He said he will NEVER go back and work in a "right to work" state again. By the way: after questioning his employer on inconsistant work patterns, he was placed "on call" as punshiment for questioning the"bosses". Ohio, is this how you want YOUR workplace enviornment to be?? Im sure some of your workplace enviornments are exactly like this now, and here. Under right to work laws, IT WILL BE WORSE!!! My cousin also stated that he didn't know how good he had it, WE have it in a union state! ( He does not work for a union company presently) Food for thought. So, If you think that "curtailing" unions won't affect you, guess again!!!And by the way, if you think the ecomony is better in a right to work state, also guess again. Yes, there are more jobs. The reason for such is constant turn over due to employee abuse and dissataification due to low wages and benefits because due to right to work laws, the bosses (Employers) can get away with it. So, again, if thats the lifestyle you want for you and your family, so be it. Economics 101: Low wages equal low pay which equals low spending which equals bad ecomony which equals..... well you get it, dont ya???
