There is no right to work spelled out in our constitution. On the same level, there is also nothing in the constitution that says the government can force me to pay a private organization to work for a business who would choose to employ me otherwise.
You see, Rand is not suggesting that we block union membership nor is he trying to block the ability of an employer to enter into a contractual obligation to a union. What he is trying to block is the extortion of dues from people who don't wish to join a union.
Rand doesn't have the same character that his dad does, that is true, but he's still a really good guy. This bill would promote freedom and remove power from the unions who have grown all too cozy with the fact that people have to hand them money no matter what they do ... much like our dear government.
