    Is this a poll?

    perhaps a restart is in order. If the person starting this poll was a trained unionized worker he would have done it right.

    Re: Are you forr or againstt Right to Work laws?

    I'm a liberal, of course I'm for those laws. It regulates relationships between two private entities. Why should a business and a union be able to enter into a contract I disagree with? We need more regulation!

    Can you give a brief summary of what this law means and why it is important? If you do, I will give you an honest response. My state is a "Right To Work" state but I've never fully understood the implications. Can you please explain without political commentary? Just the facts please.

    I am for right to work laws. Joining a union and or paying union dues should never be a condition of employment.IfI want to be a police officer, fire fighter, public school teacher or some other public sector employee or I want to work in the airlines I should not have to join a union or pay dues. If someone wants to join a union it should be their choice.If for some reason they dislike the main union they should be allowed to form their own union or join a different one. What an employer pays a non-union employee is non of the business of the union.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Basically a person has a right to work without union representation.

    I read somewhere that 40% of the voters vote for Republicans yet their dues go to support Democrats and that is not right.

    This.

    I've disliked unions since I was 19 years old. The only Corporate American job I ever had was with the phone company. I had to join the union. I hated that I was forced to pay to some business entity to negotiate on my behalf. And hold me back. And write my rules. Even at 19, I got it. And still do.

    I don't mind them in the private sector. Public sector? I think they should be illegal.

    Right to work laws simply mean that closed shops are illegal. A closed shop is where union membership or paying union dues is a mandatory condition of employment of that place that is a closed shop.

    Many years ago unions performed a necessary service for the employees but they have long ago outlived out their usefulness.
