Support the National Right To Work Act

From The National Right To Work Committee:

The 2016 Presidential Election campaigns are at full stride, and the start of the Congressional races is not far behind.

Airwaves will resound with politicians and talking heads, expounding on what ails our country.

But there is one issue they all too often fail to mention -- a policy that holds back our economy, corrupts our political system and punishes working Americans just trying to live out the American dream . . .

. . . Compulsory Unionism.

You see, in 1935, politicians in Washington, D.C. bestowed on Big Labor the raw power to compel working men and women to pay tribute to a union boss just to work and feed their families.

And the injustice doesn’t stop there.

Union officials use this forced-dues treasure chest to bankroll the election and re-election of their pet politicians, who in turn vote with the union bosses at the expense of rank-and-file workers and the businesses that employ them.

Now, going into next year’s elections, it’s time you and I make forced unionism an issue the politicians dare not ignore.

That’s why I hope you’ll sign the petition I've prepared for you to your Congressman and Senators at once.

The fact is, the cost of federally imposed forced unionism to working men and women, small businesses, taxpayers and all Americans is enormous:

***Millions of working Americans are forced to pay union dues out of every paycheck -- giving union bosses money that could go to workers’ families or be saved for their future.

***Big Labor’s forced-unionism power is deadly to millions of small businesses. Union-label politicians and Obama-stacked bureaucracies strangle businesses with confiscatory taxes, straitjacket regulations and destructive laws, damaging our economy and driving good jobs overseas -- or out of existence.

***Union bosses pump hundreds of millions of dollars into the coffers of handpicked, radical Tax-and-Spend politicians like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

***Bitter strikes shut down businesses and destroy jobs, while union militants foment “hate-the-boss” propaganda and wield brickbats against anyone who gets in their way -- workers, their families, even innocent bystanders.

The good news is, a National Right to Work law, when ultimately passed, will end Big Labor’s stranglehold on American workers, businesses and the economy.

And just getting a vote is a win/win scenario for opponents of forced unionism.

You see, poll after poll confirms that nearly 80% of Americans believe compulsory unionism is just plain wrong.

A public, roll-call vote will put every member of Congress on record for or against forcing workers to pay dues and fees just to get or keep their jobs.

Then, the true loyalties of Big Labor’s pet politicians will be laid bare for all to see, and the voters will hold them accountable.

The fact is, every time there has been a high-profile vote on compulsory unionism, forced-dues advocates have gone down in flames when faced with re-election.

That’s why it’s vital you sign the petition to your U.S. Congressman, Senators, Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, urging them to cosponsor and seek roll-call votes on the National Right to Work Act (S. 391/H.R. 612).

This one-page Bill does not add a single word to existing federal law. It simply repeals those sections that grant Big Labor the power to force working Americans to pay dues and fees as a condition of employment.

And a National Right to Work law would strike at the heart of Big Labor’s power -- coercion.

Over the years, well-intentioned efforts have been made to curtail the union bosses’ forced-dues power, but these efforts have been like a terrier nipping at an elephant.

Only a National Right to Work law will put a stake in the heart of Big Labor’s compulsory unionism leviathan and the devastation it begets . . .

. . . The out-of-control spending, soaring taxes and skyrocketing debt coupled with closed plants, foreclosed homes and dwindling opportunities.

All while union bigwigs enjoy a champagne, caviar and limousine lifestyle with booty stripped from workers forced to turn over their hard-earned wages.

That’s why it’s so important you and I not give politicians a pass on this crucial issue.

And why it’s vital you sign the petition I've prepared for you, demanding that your Congressman and Senators cosponsor and seek roll-call votes on the National Right to Work Act at once.

With BILLIONS of forced-dues dollars and tremendous political power at stake, you can be sure Big Labor and their Washington, D.C. allies will do everything they can to kill our Bill quietly, without even a vote.

In fact, with presidential campaigning in full swing and Congressional campaigns to kick off soon, forced-dues apologists can’t afford a public debate focusing attention on the evils of compulsory unionism.

So it’s up to you and me to shine a spotlight on the scourge of Big Labor’s forced-unionism privileges by forcing a vote on the National Right to Work Act.

But we can’t do it alone.

It will take the heat from throngs of Americans, demanding an end to the blight of forced unionism, to propel action on Capitol Hill.

That’s why, along with your petitions, I hope you’ll include a generous contribution of $30 to help rally opponents of forced unionism nationwide to join the battle to recruit cosponsors and force roll-call votes on the National Right to Work Act.

If $30 is just too much for you to spare right now, please consider $.00 or $20.

Now is the time for opponents of forced unionism to unmask Big Labor’s crony politicians and hold them accountable.

So please sign the enclosed petitions and return them along with your most generous contribution of $30, $20, or at least $.00 at once.

Sincerely,

Mark Mix

P.S. Big Labor’s forced-dues power holds back our economy, corrupts our political system and subjugates Americans to union boss tyranny.

That’s why it’s vital you sign and return the enclosed petitions to your Congressman, Senators, Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader McConnell today, urging them to cosponsor and hold roll-call votes on the National Right to Work Act at once.

And along with your signed petitions, please include a generous contribution of $30, $20, or $.00 to mobilize Americans across the country to demand an end to the national scourge of compulsory unionism.
