Wisconsin was only one of about two dozen states where members of Republican-led majorities in one or both chambers introduced either right-to-work bills, aimed at preventing workers from being forced to pay union dues, or measures to roll back prevailing wage laws that establish workers’ pay on public projects.
This week, Wisconsin joined two dozen other states with laws saying workers can’t be forced to join labor unions to keep a job. But as more states move to weaken unions, the unions are fighting back.
Alaska is not a right-to-work state. But with a Republican dominated legislature and executive branch, it is seen as a state where legislation could pass.
