Did you hear Wisconsin State AFL-CIO President Phil Neuenfeldt on the Joy Cardin Show this morning? The calls and comments from listeners were overwhelmingly in favor of the rights of workers who want to form strong, effect unions. If you missed your chance to call in, you can still make your voice heard.
Contrary to the name, this legislation won’t give anyone rights or jobs. It just weakens unions by letting free-riders get all the benefits of union protection without paying their fair share. The result? Weakened unions with fewer resources to defend the workers they represent. That’s why workers in states with these misnamed laws make, on average, $5,500 a year less.
Be sure to vote NO before the poll closes. The online survey is towards the bottom of the page. Your action now will help discourage legislators from proposing a Right to Work for Less law here in Wisconsin.
