    I shouldn't have presumed to know the posters reason as to why s/he supports right to work laws. As far as my personal experience with my union, it was mixed with my local, but overall it was very positive for me in terms of economics/health care and job security. However, for me to support right to work laws based on that would be selfish. I look at the bigger picture and how unions affect workers overall. Higher wages, better health benefits, better job security, safer working conditions, etc. Right to work laws undermine the labor movement and serve to weaken unions.

      Meant to type "oppose right to work" laws, not support

      The original message poster sits back enjoying all of the benefits that come with high union density while decrying the laws that allow for those benefits.  He ought to come down here and work for a supermarket in a right to work state and sing that tune.  He wouldn't be able to afford the computer to post his messages of joy for the right to work laws.
