Why "Right to Work" is Wrong for Workers

Robert Reich

Right to Work Facts

Just by living in a Right to Work state, the average worker gives up $1,540 in salary every year.

Across America, states with Right to Work laws have higher unemployment and lower pay. That’s exactly what the corporate interests want. They want to use Right to Work to destroy unions that stand up for workers across the country. They want Right to Work to ship more jobs overseas, rig the tax system and demand more work from employees while treating them with less respect.

Right to Work laws eliminate freedom and flexibility for workers. Workers lose job security, good-paying jobs and health insurance in Right to Work states. Right to Work means more pressure on struggling working-class families, not less.
