All Blue/White Collar Workers Need Protection from Right To Work Law

Recommended Posts

Right To Work Legislation

--- Misleadingly named right-to-work (RTW) laws do not, as some unfamiliar with the term may assume, entail any guarantee of employment for people ready and willing to go to work.

http://www.epi.org/research/right-to-work/

--- Rather, by making it harder for workers’ organizations to sustain themselves financially, state RTW laws aim to undermine unions’ bargaining strength.

--- Because RTW laws lower wages and benefits, weaken workplace protections, and decrease the likelihood that employers will be required to negotiate with their employees, they are advanced as a strategy for attracting new businesses to a state.

http://www.epi.org/research/right-to-work/

--- But EPI research shows that RTW laws do not have any positive impact on job growth.

​I agree with you on this point but its not just rightwing politicians backed by wealthy supporters who are destroying organized labor with Right To Work laws its non union working people's attitudes as well. They think union workers are lazy and unions like politician can't be trusted.

The right to work states are the right to black slaves states where

fat ass hole white guys are too lazy to work. So, they now enslave

American workers and illegal mexicans and move US factories to

asia for more slave and child labor with no laws regarding pollution

and safety and no benefits like health care laws.

 

Welcome to the piece of shit conservative republican platform.

 

In contrast, unions and blue state Democratic politicians created

public schools and universities, social security, workmen's compensation

laws, anti-pollution laws where before ass hole corporate owners just

dumped toxins into rivers.

UNIONS ARE BENEFICIAL TO THE ECONOMY AND CREATE OTHER THAN UNION JOBS

 

Conservatives have sought to malign the union movement by claiming that it is simply defending the parochial interests of labor unions, who they claim are imposing huge costs on taxpayers with little benefit.

 

Yet the truth is that America’s public and private unions have been one of the major forces in building a robust and vibrant middle class and have fought over the past century to improve the lives of all Americans in a variety of ways.

 

 

1. Unions Gave Us The Weekend: Even the ultra-conservative Mises Institute notes that the relatively labor-free 1870, the average workweek for most Americans was 61 hours — almost double what most Americans work now. Yet in the late nineteenth century and the twentieth century, labor unions engaged in massive strikes in order to demand shorter workweeks so that Americans could be home with their loved ones instead of constantly toiling for their employers with no leisure time.

 

 

2. Unions Gave Us Fair Wages And Relative Income Equality: As ThinkProgress reported earlier in the week, the relative decline of unions over the past 35 years has mirrored a decline in the middle class’s share of national income. It is also true that at the time when most Americans belonged to a union — a period of time between the 1940s and 1950s — income inequality in the U.S. was at its lowest point in the history of the country.

 

 

3. Unions Helped End Child Labor: The very first American Federation of Labor (AFL) national convention passed “a resolution calling on states to ban children under 14 from all gainful employment” in 1881, and soon after states across the country adopted similar recommendations, leading up to the 1938 Fair Labor Standards Act which regulated child labor the federal level for the first time.

 

 

4. Unions Won Widespread Employer-Based Health Coverage: “The rise of unions in the 1930s and 1940s led to the first great expansion of health care” for all Americans, as labor unions banded workers together to negotiate for health coverage plans from employers. In 1942, “the US set up a National War Labor Board. It had the power to set a cap on all wage increases. But it let employers circumvent the cap by offering “fringe benefits” – notably, health insurance

 

 

5. Unions Spearheaded The Fight For The Family And Medical Leave Act: Labor unions like the AFL-CIO federation led the fight for this 1993 law, which “requires state agencies and private employers with more than 50 employees to provide up to 12 weeks of job-protected unpaid leave annually for workers to care for a newborn, newly adopted child, seriously ill family member or for the worker’s own illness.”

When I was very young & actually trusted people, I was an organizer for the UMW. When I desperately needed their help, they threw me to the wolves. Thank God I was young enough to regroup. Never ever involved with a union since then. So, pipe fitter - code welder paid off, since I was ( still am ) excellent at what I did. If you're really gifted, high dollar jobs are available. I retired in my 50s.

Spinless pussies, Be Union strong and you won't have to kiss the ASS and you will get paid a real salary with real benefits all without having to get poop on your nose.

Last big job I was on, there were non union & union. When the job was winding down & the punch list ( work that was substandard ) surfaced, the non union company had infinitely less problems. Reason being, no union to defend screw ups. Can't say all union workers screw up ( that would be lying ), but on that job it was about 8 or 10 times higher than the non union company I worked for.

Deliberately misnamed "right to work" laws undermine unions by making it more lucrative, in the short run, for workers to leave the union. The purpose of right to work laws is to bust unions.

Lies....total lies.

 

General Service Mechanic in New York, NY

$36,000

 

Automotive Technician Automotive Mechanic in New York, NY $64,000

 

Now lets look at a right to work state like mine Michigan.

Automotive Mechanic Automotive Technician in Michigan $62,000

 

Same job, compare closely right? What about that pesky cost of living though? You want to start comparing those. I bet the extra 2g is a drop in the bucket when you pay $11 for a pack of smokes.

bump


Why do conservatives hate to pay workers a very good wage for their labor?

 

What is it about the GOP that wages war on wages and benefits?

 

Apparently the GOP is so damn dumb that they cannot comprehend that there is correlation between good wages and economic growth.

 

Damn that is dumb to the extreme.
