    Oh come now---that's a misnomer, kind of like saying "pro-life," instead of "anti-abortion." Right to work is actually "anti-union." Most union shop agreements, as the Joe the Plumber article notes, only require that you pay a fee, not that you join the union. Right to work means cancelling the fee and giving a free ride to non-union members who. despite that, benefit from union negotiations. Eventually, as enough members refuse to pay the fee, the local union dies, leaving everybody without a voice.
