    Good!

    Right to Work laws = underpaid, overworked employees making $8/hr.

    The rest of us pay higher taxes for their food stamps, health care, etc….while the "Walmart type" companies earn billions in profits off their cheap labor.

    The Indiana Supreme Court will uphold the law...I'm from Indiana. They tend to be conservative.

    A principled libertarian (I know, I know---oxymoron) should be against all 'right-to-work' laws, as they compel an organization (union) to provide services and expressly forbids them to exact payment. This amounts to government-endorsed slavery, which was the judge's rationale.

    Too bad there is no such thing as a principled libertarian. They always find some way of wriggling around until they achieve their pre-determined ends.

    No, right-to-work simply means that you shouldn't be coerced to pay union dues if you work in a job that's typically union-dominated (think factory workers, teachers, etc.).

    The libertarian thing is to say that you shouldn't be coerced PERIOD, whether it be in the private or the public sector.

    NO! A "Right-To-Work" law also includes the employer being able to terminate a worker for any reason they choose. Florida is a Right-To-Work state and if you look at your boss the wrong way or politely disagree with them, you can be fired.

    It's the "Stand Your Ground" law for the corporate guys!

    Plus, if you are terminated here in the Sunshine State, the Governor will hate you and can't receive unemployment benefits.
