Democrats Launch New Attacks on Right-to-Work Laws

One of the great accomplishments of the Trump era was the Janus decision — a 5-4 Supreme Court ruling, supported by Trump-appointed Justice Neil Gorsuch, which ruled that non-union public sector workers cannot be forced to pay union fees as a condition of employment. This decision is similar to right-to-work laws which extend these freedoms to most private sector workers as well. To date, 27 states have afforded their residents right-to-work protections. Studies show that families in right-to-work states have, on average, greater after tax income and purchasing power than in non-right-to-work states. Right-to-work states also have lower unemployment rates.
