1. “To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves is sinful and tyrannical.” -Thomas Jefferson These words of warning, written in 1786 by the father of American liberty, have gone unheeded in today’s labor scene. Federal labor laws have, since the 1930s, permitted and encouraged the growth of compulsory unionism arrangements between union officials and employers, forcing millions of employees to pay dues to unions as a condition of employment. Workers subject to these forced unionism schemes have been denied their freedom of choice as to joining and financially supporting a labor union.The power to compel employees to financially support a labor union is still granted to union officials by federal law in 27 states. In these states that have not yet passed a Right to Work law, this power has led to abuses of workers’ human rights and civil liberties. Even in the 27 states that have such a law, enforcement is very difficult. Many e...

"Right-to-work" laws are derived from legislation forbidding unions from forcing strikes on workers, as well as from legal principles such as "liberty of contract," which as applied here sought to prevent passage of laws regulating workplace conditions. The term itself was coined by one Vance Muse, a Republican operative who headed an early "right-to-work" group, the "Christian American Association", to replace the term "American Plan" after it became associated with the anti-union violence of the First Red Scare.Muse used racist rhetoric when he campaigned for these laws, such as when he said: Other stuff Vance Muse did: fought against women's suffrage, a child labor amendment, the 8-hour work day and Felix Frankfurter (a Jew) as a Supreme Court justice, while launching the very first steps towards the Southern Strategy. His "Christian American Association" was also anti-semitic as well as anti-Catholic.
