I remember Daniels getting a lot of heat for not pushing RTW legislation last year. He and the Indiana House and Senate had a lot on their plates legislatively last year. Daniels wanted hearings on it last year and to look at RTW for this session. In December, Daniels came out in full support of RTW.
Today he signed the bill into law making Indiana the 23rd RTW state in the nation. You gotta give Daniels credit. He is a man of his word. Great job Mitch!!!
I see that JPG answered your question but I’m sure your cousin’s union told them they would lose their jobs over RTW. Gotta keep the gullible in line.
Why would we want it back?
Wow, great. Which state should be next? Ohio?
“Why would we want it back?”
22 cents per kilometer is about 35 cents per mile.
This is what your new masters are doing the Canadians TODAY.
Thank you both for the info. I finally found the synopsis of the law and WOW! it was even understandable. I guess the folks who are howling about this are not able to find that easy to understand version. I was viciously attacked by my own kin because of his hysterical determination to stop this “abomination against workers”. Seriously, it is disturbing that we share the gene pool.
And add one protectorate, Guam. Close to half the states have RTW, and more are coming.
Here's the list:
Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Guam, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Wyoming.
It would be prudent for the Buckeye State to embrace the freedom and liberty of Right to Work as soon as possible. Otherwise, businesses will flee the eastern part of the state and head next door to Indiana.
Comparing the map above with the 2008 election map below is interesting. The states where union goons run things largely went for the Marxist. In contrast, where freedom and liberty are embraced with RTW, they mostly went for Sarah Palin (and some guy that was also on the ticket):
Sort of interesting that former slave states are now right to work states and former Union states are now mostly union states.
The transformation of the South is remarkable. What was once a solidly Democrat region has done a 180% turnabout, fully embracing Conservatism. As you said, the states of the Confederacy where slavery once existed now are where worker and employee freedom now reign with common-sense Right to Work laws.
And since I'm about to turn 70, I've seen these dramatic changes all within my lifetime.
Mike Pence is going to run there!
Part of that is because in the 70s and 80s (and later) when times got hard unions (which are historically based in what was the North) threw the southern plants under the bus when they were told “we need to lay off workers, tell us where we can”. The northerners chose to pitch the struggling Johnny-come-lately southerners first to save themselves rather than spread losses equally and they continue to do so.
They built themselves up a lot of ill will and Southerners are the type who will do something about it.
State by State,with luck we will make this into a law in California one of these days.Hope Indiana stands firm with what they’ve just passed.
To use the most over worked word in the English language.....
If once again a right to work state proves it takes jobs and bid ness from non right to work states then there will be a rush to do so in Ohio and Michigan. As for Illinios, me thinks that state is lost forever and rightfully so being obammys home and all to hell with it.
The workers of Indiana are finally free!
I recall Governor Daniels said on WLS (Chicago) that living next door to Illinois was like living next door to the Simpsons.
