I-777 gives workers choice
Right now in Washington, workers are being denied a basic right of choice. Laborers from both the private and public sectors lack the freedom to withhold their membership from unions. Adoption of a right-to-work law would give workers that freedom. Employees would no longer pay dues under threat of firing. Forcing workers to belong to and fund unions is not only unconstitutional, but also detrimental to the local economy. Nearly 80 percent of Americans support right-to-work laws.
When laws are changed to allow workers the freedom of choice, state economies and individual workers salaries flourish. Research based on laws in other states shows marked success. Idaho has enjoyed exceptional industry growth since the enactment of a right-to-work law in 1986. Manufacturing employment in Idaho has increased by 39.6 percent, while Washingtons manufacturing jobs have increased by a meager 9.5 percent.
An initiative filed earlier this year would bring choice to the workplace. I-777 is a right-to work initiative. To learn more about the initiative, visit www.for777.org.
