NEW YORK, NY - OCTOBER 05: Thousands of Wall Street protesters are joined by union members during an afternoon protest on October 5, 2011 in New York City. Hundreds of activists affiliated with the 'Occupy Wall Street' demonstrations have been living in a park in the Financial District near Wall Street. The activists have been gradually converging on the financial district over the past two weeks to rally against the influence of corporate money in politics among a host of other issues. Over 700 people were arrested last weekend on the Brooklyn Bridge after temporarily blocking traffic. (Image credit: Getty Images via @daylife)
Believe it or not, that's what the thugs are claiming in a lawsuit against the state's new right-to-work law. These are the same unions who support the Occufailers - check the video of last night's PDX festivities in which occufail types claim that police were first formed to round up slaves. The thugs and failures are on the same page; make no mistake.
In the lawsuit, the union claims that the Indiana right-to-work bill “requires dues-paying union members to work alongside non-union personnel,” which the union contends is slavery.
It's a pretty amazing argument: they're claiming that giving people a choice as to whether or not the wish to become a union "brother" or "sister" constitutes slavery, whereas forcing people to join a union and pay so-called "dues" is not. It's a suit straight out of Orwell's Animal Farm. Oregon is one of about 27 states which does not offer workers freedom of choice in the form of a right-to-work law, and if you've ever had a job in a "union shop", you know how repressive it is.
