FORBES | Judge Rules Wisconsin’s Right To Work Statute Illegal — Now What?
One year after Wisconsin adopts Right to Work law, a federal judge has ruled it unconstitutional. Judge Foust shares, “a free-rider problem is born – the ability of nonmembers to refuse to pay for services unions are compelled to provide by law.” George Leaf asks in Forbes, what now?
“As Rick Esenberg, president of the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty correctly states, “No union is compelled to represent any group of employees. When it chooses to do so, it receives extraordinary statutory privileges….If it is unwilling to … serve as an exclusive agent without the ability to compel payment, it does not have to do so.””
