McConnell, Paul Want ‘Right to Work’ Law on ENDA

Senator Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) announced Tuesday morning before the Senate that him and Senator Rand Paul (R., Ky.) would like to attach a right-to-work amendment to ENDA.

McConnell applauded Michigan Governor Rick Snyder’s efforts, reminding the Senate that almost a year ago, Snyder signed historic right-to-work legislation into law. McConnell explained that the labor force has neglected workers’ rights and instead chosen to place a premium on "its own perfection and power."

He summed up his proposed amendment, saying "If you want to join a union, you request. If you don’t want to join a union, you don’t have to and described the amendment as "basic fairness."
