""States with "Right to Work" Laws Have:
Lower Wages and Incomes
The average worker in states with "right to work" laws makes $1,540 a year less when all other factors are removed than workers in other states.1
Median household income in states with these laws is $6,437 less than in other states ($46,402 vs.$52,839).
In states with "right to work" laws, 26.7 percent of jobs are in low-wage occupations, compared with 19.5 percent of jobs in other states.
Less Job-Based Health Insurance Coverage
People in states with "right to work" laws are more likely to be uninsured (16.8 percent, compared with 13.1 percent overall; among children, it’s 10.8 percent vs. 7.5 percent).
They’re less likely to have job-based health insurance than people in other states (56.2 percent, compared with 60.1 percent).
Only 50.7 percent of employers in states with these laws offer insurance coverage to their employees, compared with 55.2 percent in other states. That difference is even more significant among small employers (with fewer than 50 workers)—only 34.4 percent of them offer workers health insurance, compared with 41.7 percent of small employers in other states.
Higher Poverty and Infant Mortality Rates
Poverty rates are higher in states with "right to work" laws (15.3 percent overall and 21.5 percent for children), compared with poverty rates of 13.1 percent overall and 18.1 percent for children in states without these laws.
The infant mortality rate is 15 percent higher in states with these laws.
Less Investment in Education
States with "right to work" laws spend $3,392 less per pupil on elementary and secondary education than other states, and students are less likely to be performing at their appropriate grade level in math and reading.
Higher Rates of Death on the Job
The rate of workplace deaths is 36 percent higher in states with these laws, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Like I say, it could be Karma.

The unions now look like the bad guys and loyal democrat commenators are bashing the main stream media for a clear bias.

Sometimes silver linings are there for a reason.

It's that whole 'personal responsibility' thing you're uncomfortable with, innit...?
You're wrong. Many people take whatever job they can get which is not much of a choice.

BTW, there are quite a few people in America who were and are being forced to work, sometimes for no pay.

Some news just can't come at a better time.

"France’s most famous leading man, Gérard Depardieu, has joined the flight of France’s wealthy to less tax-heavy destinations, establishing his residency in the Belgian border town of Néchin."

This is exactly where we're going, people.

If the cable company asked people if they would prefer to have the benefits of their products with or without paying for it, some people without ethics would choose NOT TO PAY.

The same is true of union dues. If ALL workers get the benefits that unions bargain for, there will be some people without ethics who will not pay.

In both cases, the unethical people are behaving in a manner that is unfair, as well as dishonest.

Apparently, the French actor isn't the only one getting the heck out of dodge.

Laetitia Casta, a wealthy French model (and a Victoria's Secret Angel) moved to London.
Alain Ducasse, a French chef, moved to Monaco to take advantage of their very low tax rates.
French singer and actor Johnny Hallyday moved to Gstaad, Switzerland, to escape the high taxes of France.

Wonder if enough of the wealthy leave France if the ordinary taxpayer can take up the slack?

If not, then what?

NEW YORK (MarketWatch)— U.S. stocks fell Thursday after House Speaker John Boehner declared spending to be the issue preventing a deal to avert spending cuts and tax hikes from starting in the new year.

Dear Boehner, STFU

First Bush almost destroys my 401K, Obama brings it back and now Boehner wants to polish it off.

Dear Republicans,

Quit playing politics with my life.

Love,

just in case you don't understand , people work for company's not unions. If a conpany offers a job what right does any union have to make you pay to work their? It's just a form of extortion.
