Translation of 'right to work': We, your employers and the representatives we've bought, decide whether you have any right to work.

Unions enable workers to send Representatives to negotiate wages and benefits and conditions. I always looked at it as the Union would not be needed if the company acted in good faith and treated their employees fairly. I worked at Union and non Union jobs. The Union workplaces were much better. I saw people treated like dirt and told to do things that were flat out illegal in a few non union facilities, but to keep the job they had to do it. Is it Union busting? I think so.The jobs that will come will be lower paying and with less benefits. Count on it. Indiana took a beating in the last 5 years. This is not the answer. Just MHO.

re: #2 nines09

But don't forget that lower pay created more jobs at GM. I'm not saying its a good solution. I'm just saying that it wouldn't be an honest discussion without at least mentioning this fact. Proponents of the bill will bring this up as a talking point. Count on it.

re: #3 EiMitch
The point is they wish to make Indiana a right to work state. There is no honesty in that. And I would bet the lower payed GM workers have the benefit of the Union. It's hard out there and the GOP/TP is using that fact as a way of breaking Unions. Irregardless of what you think about them, they saved lives and enabled working stiffs to get a better deal. The argument I always heard was "they ain't worth that much money" and of course the person saying this was always underpaid. I just see it for what it is. Busting.
