"Right to Work" is a controversial move many states are looking at and some have adopted.

Some say it might be coming to Michigan.

In March, Indiana became the 23rd state to pass legislation to allow employees to decide if they want to join or opt out of the union at their place of employment.

In Wabash County, IN, so-called smokestack industry has left and the county has lost 5.6 percent of its population. Wabash County Economic Development Group President William Konyha believes "Right to Work" could be beneficial.

RIGHT TO WORK STATES are no good for any state.Tennessee has the law and we have very little industery left.You work for a wage that is 7.25 no more than 9.00 per hour hard to feed a family on that.The Koch Brothers are cheep employers and they were involved in Mi.Law Passing.They brought their chicken house here Koch Foods,they Polluted our lakes and Some business had to move because of the smell,and you have no rights at all hence the name (right to work)without unions you work for what the cheap wage they offer or YOU HAVE THE RIGHT NOT TOO!!!!!

Typical tactic of the ignorant. Give us our way or we'll crap on everything. Childish and immature. You don't suppose people have witnessed enough of that mentality? You don't guess maybe this is why most people are repulsed by unions?
I for one am totally disgusted by the thuggish behavior and feel no sorrow for rtw. P.S. I've never seen a 'union' shop, when did the union start opening facilities and employing people? NEVER. The company owns the job, not the union.
Well you better crap on them because they are going to crap on employees once he signs that law next week.

<quoted text> Right.... What the law will do is hold unions accountable to their members. If they are value added, members will continue to support them. The ones bitching the loudest are usually the ones that enjoy protection from rightful termination because they lack a work ethic. The 'members' that will withhold funding are typically those who've watched the above for years get away with cheating everyone and have had to pick up the slack because of it,(incidentally are lower on the seniority scale and are the first to be laid off). Unions will either focus on ALL members needs or die out, pretty simple really. It's fascinating that the bureaucracy ( read the 1% at the top of your food chain), can whip the rank and file into supporting forced contribution rather than free association and you think it's a good thing. You seem to think that you're being cheated out of something, the reality is that your 1% er's will have to justify their exorbitance to you, who are footing the bill.
No I,m saying the Right To Work Law is a way for companies to drive DOWN the hourly wage,with no rights what so ever.Unions are the reason that the employer acknowledges the employee rights and yes a fair wage for a fair day.I am just saying RIGHT TO WORK STATES are the poorest states and very low wages.

Wages go own because the jobs can easily be done by unskilled workrs. The individuals, rather than getting aneducation to increase their sklls prefer to moan and groan blaming everyone but themself.
These are the bums that caused our industrial might to go offshore ruining what was once the greatest ountry in the world
