    Democrats in Virginia Target State’s Right to Work Law for Repeal

    Virginia Right to Work & Race -- Democrats Target State's Right to Work Law for Repeal | National Review
    Bader points out a new wrinkle in the case the Democrats are making that the law must be racist because it was passed at a time when segregationists were in control of the state. That claim is simply absurd, he points out: But there is no reason to believe that the Virginia legislature had any racist motive for passing the right-to-work law. Northern states with no history of segregation passed the same right-to-work law Virginia did. Iowa and the Dakotas did so in the very same year, 1947.
    RTW laws protect the liberty of every worker who doesnt want to support an incumbent union. Often, minority workers have been the victims of union aggression and they have as much right and reason to use the protection given by those laws as do all other workers. To declare that RTW is racist shows just how stupid the progressives think they have made the electorate with public schooling and constant propaganda.
    That's a platform: Vote for us, we'll force you to be in a union and pay for people who support us!


    RTW should be the law of the land, union Thuggery needs to be stamped OUT.

    Where do you think working conditions are better, in states that have right to work or those that don’t?

    RTW States, because you aren't forced to join a group and pay them against your will. JUST to have a job.

    I hope many states repeal right to work for less.

    Three years later, NERA has updated the report with additional data that reinforce its original findings. Specifically, the updated report presents the following information about the economic effects of right-to-work laws:

    “Private sector employment grew by 27 percent in RTW states between 2001 and 2016, compared to 15 percent in non-RTW states.
    “On average, the annual unemployment rate in RTW states was 0.4 percentage points lower than in non-RTW states. In concrete terms, if non-RTW states had had the same unemployment rate as RTW states in 2017, approximately 249,000 more people would have been employed.
    “Output has also grown faster in RTW than in non-RTW states, rising by 38 percent between 2001 and 2016, compared to 29 percent in non-RTW states. Four of the top five states with the largest growth in real per capita output over this period are RTW states.
    “The gap in manufacturing output is also substantial: Real manufacturing output rose by over 30 percent in RTW states between 2001 and 2016 compared with 21 percent in non-RTW states.
    “Higher growth rates translated into higher personal incomes: Personal income in RTW states rose over ten percentage points more than in non-RTW states between 2001 and 2016, 39 percent versus 26 percent.
    “Businesses tend to locate in RTW states, as evidenced by the more rapid growth of firms and establishments.

    Pesky things, facts. They ruin your silly political nonsense.

    No one will be 'forced into a union'.

    LOL.

    Closed Shop Agreements are Illegal in the United States
    In a closed shop agreement, the employer agrees that he will only hire employees who are members of the union. If an employee ever leaves the union, the employer must fire the employee. Closed shop agreements are prohibited by national law (called the Taft-Hartley Act) in the United States.

    Union Shop Agreements and Agency Shop Agreements Require Employees to Join Unions and/or Pay Dues to the Union
    Union shop agreements allow an employer to hire non-union members but require the employee to join the union within a certain amount of time (usually after 30 days). In practice though, employers are not allowed to fire employees who refuse to join the union, provided the employees pay dues and fees to the union. Agency shop agreements require employees who do not join the union to pay dues and fees.

    Right to Work Laws Prohibit Union and Agency Shop Agreements
    Some states enacted so-called “right-to-work” laws. These laws prohibit both union shop and agency shop agreements. These laws prohibit a person from being required to join a union or to pay union dues and fees.
    What are closed shop, union shop, and agency shop agreements? | uslawessentials

    Unions have certainly made Detroit into a thriving and prosperous boom town. The working conditions are apt to be better working for profitable employers than those who are forced to close when competition takes their market share.
