Right to Work is Designed to hurt all Wage Earners

3/30 2011

The two major supporters of Right To Work (for less) are
the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation and the aforementioned
National Right to Work Committee. Both are funded by large corporations and

fork over as a condition of employment.
