Is Indiana the new front line for the war on the working class?
Indiana is screwed as it crept one step closer to becoming the 23rd state in the nation to pass a right-to-work FOR LESS law. The State House passed legislation that was passed by the Senate earlier in the week to bring right-to-work-for-less to the state – putting an end to closed union shops and pitting workers against workers across Indiana, thus killing off the union movement in that state.
The bill now awaits Governor Mitch Daniels' signature who took a break from his war on unions this week to deliver the Republican response to the President’s State of the Union address. Indiana will become the first state in the nation’s manufacturing belt to pass a right-to-work-for-less law – which has been proven to lead to lower wages, less healthcare coverage, and more workplace accidents.
