Goal of RTW Laws: End Unions as We Know Them, Empower Corporate Special Interests
"Right to Work" in the news lately. Turn down big$ corporate background noise, here's what the debate is really about…less freedom for workers, not more
RTW laws make it easier:
-for Corp CEO's to avoid paying benefits
RTW laws are pushed by CEO's of multinational corporations who care about profits and mistreat workers, they count among their ranks toxic polluters like Koch brothers, Wall Street Banks. RTW laws would eliminate unions as we know them, cause MORE jobs to be shipped overseas rig a tax system in favor of the rich, demand more of employees while treating them with even less respect.
RTW WILL put more pressure on a struggling middle class, eliminate job security, lower pay for workers, result in LESS freedom and flexibility for people to spend time with family and the things that really matter in life.
In the states that have RTW, statistics show lower pay ($5,000 less) for employees and higher unemployment rates.
-prevent more tax burden from falling on the middle class
