Back in June, we reported that California Congressman Brad Sherman (D) was circulating a letter to his fellow Democrats to introduce legislation to repeal “Right-to-Work” laws in 22 states. Now, with less than a month before the mid-term elections and five weeks before a lame-duck session in Congress, Sherman has introduced legislation to eliminate state Right to Work laws all across America.
Currently, there are 22 states in the U.S. that have laws where workers who are employed at companies that are unionized have a choice whether or not to join or pay the union. These states are known as Right-to-Work states.
Once again, we need to ask ourselves some questions.
1) In general, which states above are having the most difficulty with chronic unemployment; Blue States or Red States?
2) Do you think that taking away right to work states will motivate US companies to bring good manufacturing jobs to the US or encourage them to ship those jobs overseas?
3) Does the fact that this is even talked about create enough uncertainty for American employers to discourage the hiring of American workers
4) Why would you want to export the blue state unemployment misery to the rest of the US?
