So-called “Right-to-Work” legislation is a slick slogan designed to trick people into believing that it protects a worker’s right to a job. Nothing could be further from the truth. So-called "Right-to-Work" legislation assures no worker a job, protects no worker against employer bias or retaliation, and undermines living wages and fair benefits.
Currently, less than half of the states in the country have adopted “Right-to-Work” laws. However, the "special-interest" supporters of “Right-to-Work” legislation claim that surrounding states are in the process of passing “Right-to-Work” legislation. This is misleading at best.
What "special-interest" supporters fail to mention is that all of these states have repeatedly rejected “Right-to-Work” laws even though supporters continue their antiquated campaigns year after year. Additionally, Colorado voters soundly defeated a “Right-to-Work” ballot initiative in 2008.
“Right-to-work” laws are outdated and a throw-back to the anti-union agenda of another era. “Right-to-work” state laws are redundant and unneeded when the current federal law is actually examined.
“Right-to-work” laws represent destructive economic development policy guided by extreme partisan politics. The goal should be to raise the standard of living for hard-working Hoosier families, not lower it.
Hard-working Hoosier families deserve better than an antiquated law designed to raise corporate profits and lower worker wages and benefits
