(Via Althouse) Futile because – and this is something that the Badger Herald unaccountably forgot to mention – the courts keep making it clear: right-to-work laws are constitutional. And the courts will inevitably do so here, as well. Like it or not, the unions are going to have to learn to accept that elections have consequences. Particularly when you’ve picked the wrong faction.
Mind you, there’s this:
…the state of Indiana may provide some evidence as to how right-to-work could be successful.
The Hoosier state was at its lowest point in 24 years for union membership when right-to-work was in full effect in 2013. But union membership has actually ticked upward from 9 percent to almost 11 percent in Indiana.
The Indiana Economic Development Commission says companies cited it as factor in their decision to locate or expand in the state. They say more than 10,000 new jobs have come from these companies.
…Maybe, just maybe, labor unions do better when they can’t count on forced dues to give them a permanent revenue stream. Maybe the exercise helps them do better. I know, I know: what a concept, right?
