Sen. Rand Paul this week introduced the National Right to Work Act, S. 204, which seeks to preserve and protect the free choice of individual employees to form, join, or assist labor organizations, or to refrain from such activities.
“Every American worker deserves the right to freedom of association – and I am concerned that the 26 states that allow forced union membership and dues infringes on these workers’ rights,” Sen. Paul said. “Right to work laws ensure that all Americans are given the choice to refrain from joining or paying dues to a union as a condition for employment. Nearly 80 percent of all Americans support the principles and so I have introduced a national Right to Work Act that will require all states to give their workers the freedom to choose.”
If you think the real problem with unemployment is that union workers are making too much money, and that there needs to be a national bill to destroy unions across the country, then Rand Paul's the senator for you, right?
This is exactly the opposite to everything we are taught to believe in the democratic process. We can have all the debate we want but in the end, the majority rules. Now they are taking the minority and placing them ahead of the majority.
This coming from the Senate GOP in the minority, always using the filibuster to prevent majority rule. Hysterical.
