Lies and the Right-to-Work

Right-to-work advocates allege that union contracts fundamentally infringe on workers’ rights and prerogatives. In response, R2W legislation would prevent any union from requiring employees to pay union dues as a condition of employment.

Seated not three feet from O’Brien, waiting to give testimony in support of the bill, was Greg Moore, State Director of Americans For Prosperity in New Hampshire. AFP pays state leadership over $100k a year to campaign specifically for legislation like right-to-work. It’s fair to say that Moore, at least, was definitely paid to be there.

And that’s pretty much what you should know about the 2015 O’Brien right-to-work act.
