While at the Statehouse on Organization Day, I took some time to speak to some of the protesters in the hallways about potential ‘Right to Work” (RTW) legislation. I made it a point to keep an open mind and listen to their arguments against RTW. After speaking to about half a dozen or so, I have come to the conclusion that the arguments against RTW are not based on logic, but based on emotion; albeit the emotion is fear and it is the most powerful of emotions, but it still a pathos-driven argument.
I reached the conclusion that the arguments were emotionally-based, because the “logical” arguments against RTW aren’t very logical at all. Allow me to walk through the main points.
