Sen. Rand Paul and a South Carolina Congressman have reintroduced legislation that would ensure that employees in particular trades can work without having to either join a union or pay dues.
The legislation, known as the National Right to Work Act, was reintroduced this week in both houses.
"Today, I reintroduced the National Right to Work Act to end forced union dues for American workers all across the country," the Kentucky Senator said in a video statement. "My bill makes sure employees of private businesses, airlines, railroads, get the same protections.”
Fox News reported that over half of states have enacted right-to-work laws since the 1950s.
