Indiana ‘Right To Work’ Measure Criticized By Illinois Governor Pat Quinn

The Huffington Post

As Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels prepares to sign right-to-work legislation into law, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn said he’s not worried about the move driving companies out of Illinois and to Indiana.

Before Quinn presented his State of the State address Wednesday, he told CBS Chicago that most Illinois businesses are happy with union labor, and that prohibiting unions from requiring representation fees is a bad policy.

“That ain’t gonna happen, I’ll tell you that,” Quinn said, when asked by CBS whether businesses will leave Illinois for Indiana. “I think that’s a bad bill and I’m very sorry that Mitch Daniels is gonna sign the ‘right to work for less’ bill. That’s a bad bill for the incomes of hard-working people.”
