A statewide right-to-work bill has passed through the Wisconsin Senate and will be brought to the state Assembly next week. The Daily Caller,
The policy, which has passed in 24 states, outlaws forced union dues as a condition of employment. In their closing statements, Wisconsin senators opposed to the bill, known as SB 44, argued it lowers wages for workers and does nothing to attract jobs, while those in favor countered with opposite conclusions…
Wisconsin Policy Research Institute found in a recent poll of Wisconsin citizens that the state overwhelmingly approves of the policy. The poll found 62 percent would vote in favor of such a law, 32 percent would not and 6 percent didn’t know.
Next week, if the Assembly approve of the bill, it will move to Gov. Scott Walker’s desk to be signed. Fitzgerald is confident they have enough votes in both chambers to pass the bill.
