Wisconsin's Right to Work Organization: Another Ploy to Attack the Middle Class and Roll Back Worker's Rights
Mar 03, 2015
So-called Right to Work means fewer Wisconsin jobs, not more. Right to Work is a policy that attacks Wisconsin's workers, our wages, our safety on the job and our middle class. Right to Work is nothing more than an attempt by corporate special interests to drive down wages and erode the middle class.
The formation of this group is just another way for CEOs and multinational corporations to weaken unions and stack the deck even more in their favor, all at the expense of our middle class.
It's a power grab by the same people who ship our jobs overseas and offshore their profits to avoid paying taxes, shifting the burden to the rest of us “the same people who oppose raising the minimum wage and support privatizing Social Security. The middle class makes our country great, but it's struggling."
Wisconsin is powered by our middle class “by the nurses, steel workers, teachers and construction workers who help shape our future, keep us safe and drive our economy. Right to Work would roll back the clock on workers' rights and take Wisconsin in the wrong direction. We expect the Legislature to focus on critical issues like creating good-paying jobs and reviving our sluggish economy."
