Apparently the Republican case for these "Right to Work" laws

is CHOICE!

The Repugnants are adamantly stating the American people should have a CHOICE whether to join a union or not. They are so concerned about us losing our individual right of CHOICE.

Republicans are now pro-choice?

The Repugnants are now supporting the American woman's right to choose birth control or abortions options? Now they are ok with gay Americans choosing to wed?

I truly despise these scumbags who pose as human beings.

1. Yeah, and they are hoping that more than 50%

of eligible union members will decline to join, causing the unions to lose their certifications. At least, that's what I heard on Thom Hartmann today.
"Choice". Yeah, right.

2. We know what this is about, it's about clearing a path for the rich to get richer by

paying workers less wages, less benefits, less pensions, and making them work longer so they are closer to death before collecting their deserved retirements.

5. The truly sad part is they're wrong about their own goal

Workers are customers. Pay your workers less, and you will sell less. So you make less money. If your workers don't directly buy your products, they buy the products of your customers.

So the plan for cutting wages and benefits actually means the rich make less money. But they're too dumb to realize it.

7. It's also about hurting the Democratic Party

by undercutting a major funding source and voting block.

3. Except, in the case of Michigan, the police and firefighters are exempt from making a "choice"

This is such a fucking joke.

Are we the punchline??

8. Oh it starts like that.

It seems like a good idea. Then many companies have found out how to make it work for them to cut workers hours and amount they pay them. They know that, with so many in need, it is a win for them. People will sell themselves sort to get that glimmer of hope that a job gives. And they can pick people that are less likely to join a union. And many out their are scared to because they see the strikes and think they will not get paid, they don't understand how it works, they just know they need a paycheck.

It is a win for the corporations a a loss for John Q. Public.
