We believe that workers have the right to collectively bargain. We also believe that workers have the right to NOT join a union if they so choose. Twenty-seven states have guaranteed this fundamental right by instituting state right-to-work laws.
The evidence is clear that businesses, jobs, factories, and investment capital migrate from the blue forced-union to the red right-to-work states. These mostly red right-to-work-states have created about twice as many jobs as the forced-union states (see chart).
So Tuesday was a dark, dark day as the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill to repeal right-to-work laws in every state. This would force tens of millions of Americans to join unions – and to pay union dues – against their will. This could raise hundreds of millions of dollars for the union bosses, who will then pass on much of this money to Democrats in campaign contributions.
Five Republicans voted with the unions.
Most distressing was the number of Democrats who voted against their own states:
Our view is: give workers the right to choose. American workers have the right to band together and form and join unions to collectively bargain, and workers also have the right NOT to join the union if they don’t want to.

Since when is the federal government allowed to violate state sovereignty and overturn state law? The principle of state sovereignty has been supported in numerous cases by the Supreme Court. This bill appears to be unconstitutional and therefore, unenforceable.
