Right to Work law

Daily Item

---- — Rep. Fred Keller was reported (Jan 23) to be proposing a so-called "Right to Work" law for Pennsylvania, which would, among other things, free workers in unionized work places from having to pay union dues.

Workers should realize that such laws are a way for employers (like Fred Keller) to drive down wages and cut benefits. States with such laws uniformly have lower wages and fewer benefits than states like Pennsylvania.

If you have a union where you work, you should support it, not undermine it.
