RIGHT TO WORK - KANSAS
I worked for 44 years for a union company in Kansas. I was never told that I had to join a union and I was never told not to join the union. I don't think changing the law is going to have the positive effect that the democrat politicians say it will. The truth of the matter is that if a person goes to work for an employer and does his/her job they have nothing to fear and don't need union representation. The most positive thing about having a union are wage progression, healthcare and retirement benefits. I did belong to the union and I would again in my case but they never had to do anything for me to protect my job, I took care of that myself through my work ethic.
