Trumka: ‘Right to Work’ Deceives Working People

February 1, 2017 Kenneth Quinnell

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka released the following statement on the national “right to work” bill:

Right to work is a lie dressed up in a feel-good slogan. It doesn’t give workers freedom—instead, it weakens our right to join together and bargain for better wages and working conditions. Its end goal is to destroy unions. Numbers don’t lie. Workers in states with right to work laws have wages that are 12% lower. That’s because unions raise wages for all workers, not just our members.
