Opinion Piece Stumps for 'Right to Work' Law in Calif.


In an Orange County Register opinion piece, National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation President Mark Mix argues that California should have "a Right to Work law making union affiliation completely voluntary." He notes that such a law would stop the Service Employees International Union Healthcare Workers West from forcing workers at Orange County's Chapman Medical Center to join the union. Mix concludes, "A Right to Work law would make it less difficult for workers to hold union officials accountable and could wake up union bosses to the harsh reality that coerced unionization is not a sustainable model for liberty or for the health of their organizations."

It's hard to see California ever having a "Right To Work Law". Although it benefits both employers and employees, it might adversely affect the ability of unions to receive and increase dues revenues.
