INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana is the first Rust Belt state to enact the contentious right-to-work labor law prohibiting labor contracts that require workers to pay union representation fees, after Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels signed the bill Wednesday afternoon. The Senate approved the measure a few hours earlier Wednesday, following weeks of discord that saw House Democrats boycott the Legislature and thousands of protesters gather at the Statehouse. "Seven years of evidence and experience ultimately demonstrated that Indiana did need a right-to-work law to capture jobs for which, despite our highly rated business climate, we are not currently being considered," Daniels said in a statement. A spokeswoman said he would not take questions on the measure Wednesday. Indiana is the first state in a decade to enact a right-to-work law.
Are you suggesting working for a federal law to require union membership, or state laws, or requiring employers to pay what union members get, or strikes, or what?
The middle class is eating itself...instead of being angry at the benefits unions receive and trying to destroy them...why don't people fight TO GET THOSE BENEFITS THEMSELVES????
