    Should Feds pass a Right To Work Law?

    Do you think that the Federal Government should pass a Right To Work Law, It should be up to the States, or should Union Membership be a mandate?

    For those that don't know Right to Work Laws are laws that make forcing employees into Unions illegal.

    None of the three.

    Instead, I support the implementation of guilds in every industry and type of labor to set minimum pay and contract standards and safe work environment standards. Guilds can also set minimum education and training requirements for those who join it. That way, workers in that industry can be certified.

    On one hand I do think that labor should be organized, as they are voters too and their interests should be represented. However, I think full on unions are harmful because they try to exert too much control over labor organizations. So the best thing to do would be to have guilds that set minimum standards for workers and that's it.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I think the federal government should have a right-to-work law for federal employees. Beyond that, leave it up to the states.

    Re: Should Feds pass a Right To Work Law?

    I would be in favor of the feds passing a right to work law. An employee and potential employee should be under no obligation to join a union. A union has no business dictating who can and can not work for a company or who should be nor be fired.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. 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"

    Everyone should be allowed to work were they want without being in a Union.

    Absolutely

    An issue for the States, not the Fed.


    My state is a "right to work" state. Unions exist but they are weak and not very common. This has its plusses and minuses.

    On the whole, I don't oppose the existence of Unions, but I think having State law propping up Union power by allowing them to force people into unions is preposterous.

    Yeah, let's take a few centuries of progress and move backward. That makes sense.

    I've always wondered why there had to be an actual law that says a person has the right to have a job.
