Unions and Right to Work
Since the 1960s, union membership in industries across America has declined. Right along with this decline is a correlated decline in wages and an increase in economic disparity. The haves have more; the have-nots have less. Unions protect workers from unscrupulous corporations, bosses and supervisors. Unions work to ensure safety in the workplace. Unions provide better healthcare through bargaining with the insurance industry. Unions negotiate living wages for their members, which contributes positively to the American economy. Unions make America stronger. As a union member myself, I will legislate to protect bargaining rights, organizing, and Employee Free Choice.
