So-called right-to-work laws, which undermine unions and good jobs by forcing unions to represent workers who don't pay dues, are advancing in state legislatures across the country.
Know the facts. So-called Right-to-Work doesn't create jobs. It turns good union jobs into bad jobs.
- Workers in so-called right-to-work states make about $5,300 less per year.
- In so-called right-to-work states, fewer are free to join a union, slashing retirement contributions and crippling pensions.
- You might call it “right-to-work to death” - the workplace death rate is 36 percent higher in so-called right-to-work states.
