Indianapolis Star Cartoon correct on Right to Work issue

It was Right then. It is Right Now!

Once upon time not too long ago, a Big Labor-controlled congress attempted to do away with state Right to Work laws by repealing the worker protection that allows states to enact laws to protect their workers’ freedoms.  Section 14(b) of the Taft-Hartley Act was the target of congress (see below).  At that time, the Indianapolis Star printed the cartoon above to ridicule those opposed to Right to Work protections.  

The same is true today.  Right to Work gives workers a choice, without it, workers are forced to pay tribute to get or keep a job.  Gov. Daniels and his Republican “Leaders” could have given that freedom to every working Hoosier; so far, they have failed the people of Indiana. 

(b) Agreements requiring union membership in violation of State law

Nothing in this subchapter shall be construed as authorizing the execution or application of agreements requiring membership in a labor organization as a condition of employment in any State or Territory in which such execution or application is prohibited by State or Territorial law.
