As America pauses for Labor Day, the battle between organized labor and the right to work movement remains intense. Right now, 27 states have right to work laws, which do not compel union membership or dues payments as a prerequisite for holding any job.
Last year, right to work advocates also scored a major win at the U.S. Supreme Court. Justices struck down a precedent dating back to the 1970’s to rule that government sector workers cannot be required to join government sector unions or pay dues.
So where does the debate over compulsory union membership stand now? What right to work states are witnessing major efforts to reverse those laws? And what will labor policy look like if a Democrat wins the White House next year.
Listen to the podcast as Greg Corombos discusses all of this and more with Mark Mix, president of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation.
