Donald Trump’s presidency could usher in a crisis for working people across the country.
Since Election Day, Republican lawmakers in Congress and state legislatures are aggressively pushing “right-to-work” laws. They’re paving the way for corporations to increase their power in workplaces and state and national politics.
And now, Donald Trump’s press secretary has indicated “the president believes in ‘right-to-work’” and he wants to do “what’s in the best interest of job creators.”
These policies won’t lead to more manufacturing plants or better jobs. They will only lead to weaker unions, less bargaining power for working people, and lower wages (union and nonunion).
We all benefit from strong unions of working people who bring about a better standard of living – not just for union members. Politicians and CEOs pushing “right to work” want to weaken unions and increase corporate profits because their goal is to make the rich richer.
Sign the petition today telling congressional and state lawmakers that “right to work” is bad for your state and bad for the country.
