Rand Paul Introduces National Right to Work Act
In addition to introducing Ron Paul’s Audit the Fed bill, Senator Rand Paul has introduced the National Right to Work Act (S. 204). This bill repeals those sections of federal law that authorize unions to require the payment of union dues as a condition of employment. (The top eight job-growth states during President Obama’s first term were all Right to Work states.) The bill thus restores to individual workers the power to decide for themselves whether or not to join a union and whether or not to support the union’s political activities. By repealing parts of federal law, the National Right to Work Act also takes a step toward reversing unconstitutional federal control of America’s labor markets.
Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul championed the Right to Work cause throughout his congressional career.
