Iowa's “right-to-work” law has been on the books for more than 60 years.

3. Let the businesses think that.
Tell them that under federal law if they enact RTW they will have to give a job to anyone that asks. Tell them it is directed under the Wagner Act and an Executive Order under FDR was signed that has never been overturned.
See how much anger he gets from them.
