Right to Work Laws

Right to Work Laws

Being able to associate voluntary is a necessary building block of a free society.  The issue of right to work has not been honestly assessed and valued in the labor system up until this point.  As a Republican, I value organization and efficiency, both of which labor unions are well renown for providing in the workforce.  Many businesses in Northwest Indiana also find union laborers to be the most safety-minded, best trained and equipped, and highly accountable workers the free market has to offer them.  As District 1 Representative in Congress, I will ensure that all Hoosiers will have the right to seek gainful employment if they desire.   However, the free-rider problems that are cited by those against the right to work are not solved by mandates of the federal government.  I also will do everything in my power to ensure that the union workforce is protected as much as possible, as they have contributed greatly to our growing economy and provide a foundation for continued growth into the future.
