    Hey! No theological discussions allowed!!!

    We have to keep everything starkly stated as absolute Good or Evil with no gray areas allowed, not even a slight tinge of gray. Everything has to be absolutely Good or absolutely Evil so we can all totally hate each other for being on the wrong side of the absolutist dividing line!!!

    Or the “Force People into Unions so they can Support the Democratic Party Act”. I think they just shortened it to the “PRO Act” in the current proposal.

    Right To Work laws effectively take away the right of workers to organize and enter into collective bargaining agreements. Eliminating those laws would give unions more power to recruit and negotiate, but only because big employers are obviously exploiting their workers and the workers are fed up with it. Nothing forces an employee to join a union, accept a job at a unionized company, or enter a highly unionized profession. But so called Right To Work laws effectively take away their right to do those things.

    For the record I've never belonged to a union, but if I went to work at a unionized company I would have no objection to joining the union. During my lifetime I've had many friends who were railroad employees or worked for car manufacturing companies and were strong union supporters, but most of the people I've known had non-union jobs. So I recognize that unions have both good and bad aspects, but the alternative is to give total power to the big corporations whose only goal is to get as much profit as possible from their workers at the lowest possible cost, and that is a much worse alternative. Here is a list of 9 pros and 9 cons of Right To Work: https://futureofworking.com/18-cruci...-to-work-laws/

    The last company I worked for before retiring had a paragraph in the employee handbook that was clearly labeled "Anti-Union Policy" and stated that they were against unions because employees should express their concerns directly to management as individuals. And you know how far doing that will get you.
