Right-to-work legislation has been in the news lately as the newest push by the ruling class to cut the benefits and living standards of the working class. Cleverly named “right”, it exudes freedom just by the sound of the word. In fact it’s quite the opposite. This is part of the austerity drive taking places across the world this one masquerading as an increase in rights. Capitalism in decay has never granted a person more rights (see Nazi Germany). It’s imperative that we look past the rhetoric and see the truth. This is what right-to-work legislation brings to the working class.
The average worker in a right to work state makes about $5,333 a year less than workers in other states ($35,500 compared with $30,167).1 Weekly wages are $72 greater in free-bargaining states than in right to work states ($621 versus $549).
