RALEIGH – N.C. House members have filed a bill to consider amending the N.C. Constitution to protect ‘Right to Work’ laws amid an impending assault by pro-union forces in D.C.
As the Biden administration and Democrats in congress push another multi-trillion dollar monstrosity under the guise of ‘infrastructure,’ it is tempting (and understandable) to focus on the sticker price. Yet, embedded in this latest behemoth bill are radical and aggressive policy changes designed to attack fundamental ‘Right to Work’ laws that protect individual workers from forced unionization, and employers from collective extortion in states around the country.
North Carolina is a Right to Work state, as are more than two dozen others you see in the map below.
In the ‘infrastructure’ package, the Left has inserted the core of what was the ‘PRO Act,’ that would effectively force unionization on companies and employees while (illegally) nullifying States’ Right to Work laws that prohibit such practices.
N.C. House Reps. Carl Ford (R-Rowan) and Jim Burgin (R-Harnett) want to ensure such federal overreach cannot stand, and so they’ve sponsored legislation to present ‘Right to Work’ as an amendment to the N.C. Constitution.
Senate Bill 624 reads:
Unions are the OG’s of Leftist power brokers, though their influence has waned in recent years, largely attributable to Right to Work laws. As a political force, they are inextricably tied to communists and Marxist thought, arguing the same narratives about the oppression of the working class and how the only solution is oppression of the employer class.
Sound familiar? It is the same basic oppressor/oppressed dichotomy that fuels the critical theories animating our current scourge of Woke Cultural Revolution. The Woke just added race and identity to the mix.
That being said, stopping the assault on Right to Work — stopping the massive empowerment of corrupt unions — is essential to protect North Carolinians rights, and certainly important enough to warrant clarifying, resolute protection in our Constitution.
