Prog Thugs ❤ Forced-Labor Unionism

Craig Becker takes on private sector oppression
Americans are leaving states with heavy union influence and choosing to live in "right-to-work" states with higher job growth where they cannot be forced to join a union as a condition of employment.

With the 2010 census, nine congressional seats will move to right-to-work states from forced unionization states.

But the Obama-controlled National Labor Relations Board isn't listening. It wants to do everything in its power to tilt the playing field toward unionization, even if it means lost jobs.

Bipartisan Ruling Class ❤s Absolute Power

Seniority curb 'gets in the way'
He was dubbed the accidental governor for a surprising victory that put him on the road to becoming the state's chief executive.

But accident or not, Republican Gov. Mike Rounds has firmly established himself as one of the state's leading political figures. He turned an unexpected primary win in 2002 into two convincing general election victories. He remains popular with most residents - a feat in itself after eight years.

His hand-picked successor, Lt. Gov. Dennis Daugaard, easily won the governor's race in November, evidence that Rounds himself might have won another term had constitutional limits not been in the way.

In a recent exit interview with South Dakota reporters, Rounds said he is happy the state has term limits for governors - though he doesn't support them for lawmakers.

Labor-State Weighs Worker-Choice

Powerful unionists prefer forced-dues, fees
Union activists are gearing up for an expected battle over legislation to make Maine what's known as a "right-to-work" state.

Enforced in 22 other states, right-to-work laws prohibit agreements between trade unions and private sector employers that make union membership and dues a condition of employment.

Such rules, say critics, make it harder for unions to organize, operate and collect dues.

But proponents say they also make states more attractive for business.
