I oppose so-called “right to work” legislation because it’s misguided and harmful to workers and the middle class.
The same CEOs and corporate interests who brought you Senate Bill 5 are supporting these dangerous attacks on workers. Just like SB5, these policies put profits before people, and are an unsafe, unfair attack on us all.
The far-reaching consequences of these policies are clear: In states where workers’ rights are denied, workplace fatalities are 36 percent higher, and household incomes are $6,437 a year less than in other states. Our everyday heroes such as firefighters, police officers, teachers, nurses and many others deserve fair wages and safe working conditions, not policies that will lower their pay and compromise their safety.
So-called “right to work” is wrong — don’t trust it.
