Guess who's not happy with union-dues bill

March 10, 2017

“Sen. Paul (R-Kentucky) has introduced the National Right to Work Act to end forced union dues for workers.

His bill is in partnership with a House bill introduced in February by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) and Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa).

"We're excited that Sen.Paul has introduced the National Right To Work Act," says Mark Mix, president of the National Right to Work Committee (NRTWC).

The legislation, says Mix, repeals provisions in federal law that allow union officials to have workers fired for failing to pay due or fees.”

Everyone who wants to work

Everyone who wants to work already has a right to do so. What he doesn't have is the right to a job and the only jobs being created are government jobs or in monopolies protected by the government. All the rest are either subsidized, such as farming or where wages are not subject to government regulation. The latter have mostly disappeared overseas or do not pay enough even to support healthy individual let alone a family.

As a member of the elite, our elected representatives appear to mean well and they will tell you they are looking out for your interests but when they vote on anything it is in the interest of people who are allowed to work the system or own it.

I will have to read about

I will have to read about this because I am surprised that Senator Paul would look to a federal law on what should be a states' issue.

"It does not add a single word to federal law," he tells OneNewsNow. "It simply repeals those provisions from 1930s labor policy that gives union officials the ability to compel a worker to pay them for the privilege of working."

I guess this answers my question.

Wait doesn'tthis chnage

Wait doesn'this chnage federal court case decisons that have upheld
these practices ?
But I wouldn't be to concerned when he is facing a binary choice ,
he will not choose wisely.
It is a state rights issue,where as the solution to the problem if it is one , lies sqaurely with the workers and state governments.
