LISTEN: What Is A 'Right-to-Work' State And Should New Mexico Become One?
KUNM Call In Show Thu. 1/15 8a:
New Mexico lawmakers will consider what is known as "right-to-work" legislation during this year’s legislative session.
What union-related requirements and union activity does current state and federal law allow in the workplace? The public sector? The private sector? What would proposed legislation change and who would benefit? Who would be harmed?
We’d like to hear from you! Email email@example.com, post your comments online or call in live during the show.
