West Virginia recently became the 26th state to adopt the Right-to-Work statute. Currently, if your state is not Right-to-Work and a union organizes your workplace, you can be forced to pay union dues as a condition of employment.
In the latest episode of the Grover Norquist Show, ATR President Grover Norquist sat down with Center for Worker Freedom’s Matt Patterson to discuss the successes and setbacks in the Right- to- Work movement.
Patterson praised West Virginia’s adoption of the Right-to-Work law stressing the importance of this labor reform:
“This has become a prime issue for Republican governance. We want to send the signal to Republicans who might be squishing on this issue that everyone is watching. This is an absolutely crucial issue because it is the bank of the Democratic Party… the unions take money from people’s wallets against their will.”
