1. The evidence is mixed on right-to-work's effect on the economy using statistical/econometric tools, but the most reliable evidence seems to show an overall positive effect. (The AFL-CIO note in the story is just silly.)
2. The one lady said: "with a stroke of a pen, (they) take our rights away." How silly. Their rights? They were forcing people to pay money they didn't want to pay to an organization they didn't want to support.
It must be tough for this lady and those who think like her. These people were able to force citizens into doing something they didn't want to do, but then the government had to come along with a law that gave them their freedom.
