Workers deserve right to work

As you shop for back-to-school supplies for your kids, consider this: The clerks, shelf stockers, truck drivers and factory workers who make that possible can all be legally forced to pay money to a union or else be fired.

You see, Washington is currently one of the 23 forced-unionism states in America.

Why? Since Washington doesn't have a right-to-work law to guarantee union membership and financial support are strictly voluntary for workers, a union boss can legally have a worker fired for not paying union dues or fees.

If you think that sounds wrong and unjust, you're hardly alone.
