Hong Blasts RTW BIll

Louis "Louie" Hong

Representative and 2020 presidential candidate Louis "Louie" Hong(D-LA-2) sharply criticized the National Right to Work Act currently being voted on in the House of Representatives.

Despite what Macmillan and the Republicans will tell you, workers already have the right to not join a labor organization if they don't want to. This is a key part of the Labor Management Relations Act of 1947, which you might know as Taft-Hartley. You can stay out of the union, but as a result, they aren't obliged to give you the same benefits as their members, the ones who are paying the fees to support them and fight for your rights. 

What their bill does do, however, is force unions to give non-members the same benefits as members without getting a cent in return. This causes a sharp drop in union membership and funding, destroying their ability to negotiate and collectively bargain with employers to set fair wages, hours, and working conditions for employees. And this, my fellow Americans, is the ultimate goal of the corporations and super PACs that support this so-called "right to work" bill. They couldn't care less about what workers actually want, they care about destroying organized labor so they can squeeze every last cent out of their employees. Let's not forget that from these PACs, Speaker Macmillan has received $5 million, and if he gets this bill passed, they will continue to bankroll his campaign. Try as he might to lie and mislead, it is plainly obvious as to why he is doing this.
