ON-Lion Letter

In February, the West Virginia state legislatures overrode a veto by Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin to make it yet another right-to-work state in America.

Tomblin vetoed the right-to-work measure earlier in the month, after expressing concern that it would not help stimulate the economy as some claimed.  The policy outlaws mandatory union dues or fees as a condition of employment.  Proponents argued that it could help reverse the effects of decades of bad economic policies.

"With the House of Delegates and Senate overriding Gov. Tomblin’s veto of the Right to Work Bill, West Virginia is now America's 26th Right to Work state," National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation (NRTWLDF) president Mark Mix said to the The Daily Caller.  "Now, more than half of the states have enacted Right to Work laws to protect workers' fundamental right to freedom of association."

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports NRTWLDF.
