At the beginning of February, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels signed into law H.B. 1001, a measure prohibiting union officials from taking money from employees’ paychecks as a condition of getting or keeping a job. Indiana thus became America’s 23rd right-to-work state.
Once the new right-to-work law takes effect, more than 40 percent of private-sector employees across the nation will hold jobs in states where forced union dues and fees are barred. That’s cause for opponents of compulsory unionism to celebrate.
