I am a union member in a right to work state. Now dont get me wrong...there is a lot of baggage that comes with being a union member, however its a voluntary agreement..the benefits outweigh the drawbacks for me. In a right to work state I am not forced to join a union to work in my field and I am not forced to pay union dues if I choose to do so(though if I dont pay dues obviously I would no longer be union). This is fine since there is NOTHING WRONG WITH VOLUNTARY ASSOCIATION. I do agree that the way its handled in non-right to work states is wrong.
