FINALLY. Thank you for this column. Right to work legislation is an infringement on the rights of workers and employers who wish to have a closed shop environment.
A better solution to the dysfunctional union problem would be to repeal pro-union labor legislation (which grants many special favors to union organizers while tying the hands of management) and to ban public sector unions on the grounds that such unions would have legally sanctioned monopolies over public services.
Your clarity is appreciated.
