    Unions have no Rights. I am pretty sure most states are right to work. What a misnomer for of a name.

    A corporation does not have the right to force you to pay X wages in your own business. And neither should unions. Neither have that right, yet that's what we see playing out.
    So no, Business doesn't have that right, and by that reasoning you should oppose unions having that right, similarly.

    They are now dead. Three cheers for Walmart. Now that the council took this action, lets see how many other retailers and large stores decide that maintaining anything inside the city limits is no longer viable. Good thing for many that it is a small area and Walmart and others can simply build outside the city and still get the cities customers.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    Neither does a union. A union negotiates an employment contract for its members.

    Actually fewer than 50% of the states are right to work, but even they do not ban unionization. They simply don't allow for unions to restrict who can be employed where a union exists. Also, have you never heard of collective bargaining rights that unions enjoy? Lastly, unions have been allowed to contribute to political activities where as this is a recent occurrence for corporations...

    More than half the states restrict unions. If the union negotiates a closed shop that should be their right. As it stands government says people can't collectively agree to closed shop. Also corporations giving money to polititions is far from new.

    From the article:
    The bill is backed by worker advocates and unions that say employees of big-box stores should earn a "living wage." It applies only to stores doing business in spaces of 75,000 feet or more.
    It would require such stores to pay every employee no less than $12.50 an hour, up from D.C.'s current minimum wage of $8.25.

    Are you claiming they cannot use government to force the business to pay a certain wage, or that they can. Which is it? It appears to be the can, and are certainly trying.

    So using money to influence government is good, or bad, or neither? If it's bad, two wrongs don't make a right.

    If a union wants a closed shop, they need to start a company, and then hire who they want...

    There were unreasonable restrictions on business activities before Citizens United otherwise, there would never have been a case taken to the courts...

    Good afternoon, AP.

    Hence the never-ending screaming from the Left about the SCOTUS ruling, which only leveled the playing field, IMO! Sheesh!

    Good afternoon pg. It is a bit ironic that those seeking fairness and justice for all also want to discriminate on what that definition of "all" is...
