President Obama's claim 'Right to Work' laws take collective bargaining rights away is ridiculous. There are still unions and collective bargaining in 'Right to Work' states. It is coerced union membership that is taken away. Employees at unionized companies have a choice to join the union or stay independent of the union. Unions hate that because they have little to offer.
From the video:
“I believe the economy is stronger when collective bargaining rights are protected. I believe when folks try and take collective bargaining rights away by passing so-called ‘right to work’ laws that might also be called ‘right to work for less,’ laws, that’s not about economics, that’s about politics.”
