Right-to-work? Why should the state put its thumb on the scale?

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

Seeing right-to-work (for less) promotion letters already this year, I want to add this to readers' thoughts, from Wikipedia.

"In December 2012, libertarian writer J.D. Tuccille, in Reason magazine, wrote: "I consider the restrictions right-to-work laws impose on bargaining between unions and businesses to violate freedom of contract and association ... I'm disappointed that the state has, once again, inserted itself into the marketplace to place its thumb on the scale in the never-ending game of playing business and labor off against one another ... This is not to say that unions are always good. It means that, when the state isn't involved, they're private organizations that can offer value to their members."
