In 2009 I heard of a new group trying to materialize in Missouri. They were trying to bring new jobs to the area but did not want to be taken over by large Union groups the second that the company showed up.
I supported the right to work before most people here even knew about it by fighting for it and getting into heated online battles for it.
Do most people ask what is the difference between a union and the right to work? Well, they both have one thing in common. They both can get really greedy and then you have to go to the lesser of the two evils.
For years the Manufacturers and other job providers did not pay a liveable wage so the labor force fought back in an attempt to make a paycheck and try to support their families. Most people negotiate for themselves and see if an agreement can be made and if not ... See Yah. There are jobs everywhere. Union members seem to love their job enough to keep it but want someone else to do their negotiating. I will never understand why grown people need to be represented but there are some that are out there that are just not good with confrontation and negotiating so they choose this path of Unionism.
Let me be clear about this. When unions first formed it was due to greed. Companies were not paying a wage that could support their employees so they united to stand up. A commendable act. But over the past several years Unions have been no better than the old employer days of being greedy and wanting too much.
Business owners and employees must come to terms or we will always have a problem in this country keeping our economy moving I do know that.
Yes, I do support the right to work. We have given the Unions plenty of time to help implement economic growth here in Missouri and all they have done is take employers and strangle them with a wage that business cannot afford and left the business with no other option to get the hell out of Dodge!
