Since the election of President Joe Biden in 2023, the Biden Administration has been hard at work fighting for unions and against individual workers. This has been accomplished by attempting to overturn Right to Work laws in 27 states, which protect workers from being forced to join a union or pay dues. The PRO Act, which would have limited independent contracting and overturned Right to Work laws, was recently defeated.
Biden will tap Julie Su, an architect of the disastrous California AB5 law, to succeed Marty Walsh at Dept of Labor.

In response to this, Senator Rand Paul has reintroduced his National Right to Work Act. This act would protect the free choice of individual employees to form, join, or assist labor organizations or to refrain from such activities. It would also repeal six statutory provisions that allow private-sector workers, and airline and railroad employees, to be fired if they don’t surrender part of their paycheck to a union. Paul is joined by 21 co-sponsors, including Representative Joe Wilson of South Carolina.
The National Right to Work Act ensures all workers have the ability to choose to refrain from joining or paying dues to a union as a condition for employment. Read more: https://t.co/PTaeM6jUJh pic.twitter.com/vtzRnKXeOu

The Right to Work laws have been widely accepted by the public, with Tennessee recently enshrining it in their state constitution and Michigan voters recently rejecting a proposal to get rid of it. Despite this, the Biden Administration continues to push for the overturning of these laws. This is a gross misuse of power and an attack on workers’ rights.
Senator Rand Paul and his co-sponsors are standing up for individuals in the workforce and defending basic liberties. The National Right to Work Act is a much needed piece of legislation that will protect workers from being forced to join a union or pay dues. It is unfortunate that so many in our government serve special interests like unions instead of the people they are supposed to represent, but thankfully there are still those who are willing to fight for the rights of individuals.
The National Right to Work Act is a crucial step in protecting workers’ rights and is an important piece of legislation that should be passed. It is essential that we continue to fight for the rights of individuals and stand up against those who are trying to take away our freedoms. We must continue to support those who are willing to fight for us and ensure that our rights are not taken away.
