The state came close to living up to its motto when it passed, by large majorities, Right to Work legislation this Spring.  But, Big Labor Gov. John Lynch vetoed the legislation and chose to continue to allow union bosses to forcibly take union dues from New Hampshire workers’ paychecks.

However, New Hampshire legislators are preparing to override the Lynch veto of worker freedom. Before the summer is over, there could be a 23rd Right to Work State. Judging by the enthusiastic response in the debate, the veto override clearly has momentum.
