Right-to-work Debate to Begin in Wisconsin with Hearing

Tuesday, 24 Feb 2015 06:51 AM

Opponents of a Republican push to turn Wisconsin into a right-to-work state plan to converge on the Capitol to hold a rally and testify in opposition of the measure on a fast track in the Legislature.

The Senate Labor Committee planned to hold an all-day hearing on the bill Tuesday.

Likely 2016 presidential candidate Gov. Scott Walker has said he will sign it into law.

There are 24 other states with a right-to-work law prohibiting companies from reaching labor agreements in which workers have to pay fees to the unions as a condition of employment.

Supporters say it's about giving workers the freedom to decide whether to join unions.

But opponents say that the measure is really about weakening unions and that passing it will ultimately lead to lower wages.
