    Nonsense. That is the government not allowing unions to milk every single employee for "dues" whether they like it or not. And that has nothing to do with whatever the union and the shop negotiate for a contract. You're all wet.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Huh? The government has decided everyone's contract terms? When does that happen?

    No it forces free riders into the work contract. Right to work is anti freedom of contract and association.

    It happens in right to work states. Unions are barred from negotiating a closed shop. That is anti freedom and dictates contract terms.

    Um, local government can also be city government and cities can and do give many a corporation subsidies.

    It's anti freedom to not be able to restrict the freedoms of others???

    A funny thing about all this, the D.C. council is doing their political best to get votes here. All WalMart is doing is reacting to the events, nothing personal, no emotion or politics about it. They even had the courtesy to let the council know beforehand what their business plans were.

    That discriminatory government action doesn't fit their plans. So they'll open stores just outside of D.C., no big deal. The people in D.C. will have to go out of their way to get there, just an added inconvenience they can thank the council for. Oh, and drive further for a job, if they can. Or someone else will get the job.

    Yep, and free riders who want the freedom not to pay union dues should also not be able to receive the benefits from a union. They have the freedom to pay their own fees for representation.

    A funny thing like giving their constituents what they expect and/or want? Don't they know where their bread and butter comes from
