More Evidence Why Pennsylvania Needs Right to Work

2013-Right-To-Work-States-Map-PA-REDA recent report by the Commonwealth Foundation illustrates how the state’s teachers unions and other public employee unions amass millions of dollars through mandatory dues deductions, and how the unions spent much of the money on political causes their members may or may not support.

“In 2012, Pennsylvania’s primary government unions spent more than $4.9 million from union dues on political activities and lobbying, a 64% increase from 2006,” according to Commonwealth research. “The Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA) is Pennsylvania’s largest government union. It boasts 190,967 members and brought in more than $100 million in revenue last year. The union spent $3.2 million of its members’ dues on political activities and lobbying.”
