    I find the idea that an employee can be forced to join a specific union to take or keep a job absolutely ridiculous but I'd also suggest the very fact the concept exists suggests much deeper and wider issues surrounding employment over there.

    I am totally against unions...Most of the people that run them are crooks. Here at Boeing when you get a job you are forced to join a union and pay dues which go in the Fat Cats pockets or to the Democratic Party candidates which you don't support.

    On this topic I have always found it interesting that those who claim loudest to be "for the workers" are also the keenest on denying them freedom in this respect, or respecting their choice if they disagree.

    In fact the right to work laws should be more robust. No closed shops and close the loopholes where closed shops are allowed to exist throuh end runs. I shouldn't have to pay ANY dues for a union I neither support nor wish to participate in. The whole argument about representation is a bogus way of saying union representation is mandatory.

    If something a union negotiates is vital for all of us, then it should be regulated for ALL of us by law, not individual negotiation.

    I think it varies from state to state.

    In Michigan, unions are required to equally represent all employees in a bargaining unit, regardless of whether they pay dues or not.
