Wisconsin To Make “Right To Work” The Law

MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Wisconsin’s Republican-controlled state Assembly has voted to make their state the 25th with a right-to-work law, sending the union-restricting measure to Gov. Scott Walker for his promised signature.

The Assembly voted 62-35 in favor of the bill Friday morning after about 20 hours of debate. No Democrats voted for the measure.

Walker, a likely Republican presidential candidate who rose to national prominence by taking on public-sector unions, plans to sign it into law on Monday. Republicans who control the state Senate passed the measure last week.

The bill would prohibit businesses and unions from reaching deals requiring all workers to pay union dues.

Supporters say right-to-work laws give workers more freedom. Opponents counter that they drive down wages and create unsafe workplaces.

Twenty-four other states have passed similar laws.
