Peruse my thoughts...
I had a young man ask me the other day what was wrong with Right to Work. He said he knows it is supposed to be bad, but no one ever says why. I answered him and later got to looking at the signs and ads. He was right, none of them said why. So here is my uneducated, but very personal, take on why Right to Work is Wrong. I've looked at Right to Work states and my husband was employed in the state of Kansas for many years. Just last year he was injured on the job performing a running maintenance procedure, which means that the machine is kept running so that there is no down time in the production of the product. These can be dangerous machines but some companies value production over people. His shirt sleeve was caught in the machine and he was pulled in and almost lost his arm. He was taken to the hospital, ambulances cost too much, was cleaned up and sewn up and asked to see the company's Workman's comp doctor the next day. He went to the company's doctor who said he didn't think he should return to work yet but had to check with the HR person at the company first. Long story short, as soon as he was off workman's comp, he was fired. He tried to ask why, the company said he was careless doing his job. He filed for unemployment (he'd worked there for over 5 years. 7 days a week, mandatory and most days over 8 hour days, again mandatory) The company denied his unemployment. Right to Work meant he had to work those 7 day weeks and when he was fired, basically for getting hurt, there was nothing he could do about it.
I don't care if you are Union or non Union, but years ago in US History, Unions organized to get 5 day, 40 hour work weeks, decent pay, lunch breaks, vacations and paid holidays, recourse if you are unjustly fired and as you can see from my husband's example, Right to Work can allow a company to take a lot of that away.
