I support The National Right-to-Work Act because Unions slow down productivity, increase costs and are a detriment to society. We do not need forced unionization.

I support The National Right-to-Work Act because...as a former member of the United Auto Workers Union, I saw firsthand the corruption in the union, and the massive, unnecessary costs added to the price of American cars by this union. Americans should be free to join or not join any union. In Nevada, a teacher may only opt out of union membership during a two week period in July (while most teachers are on vacation). Union contracts like this are certainly unconstitutional. The National Right To Work act is the right thing to do. Actually, it should not be necessary. The Constitution itself prohibits forced unionization.

I support The National Right-to-Work Act because it is simply wrong to require anyone to join a dues-paying organization in order to work, and then the leaders of that organization use the dues to support their political choices.

I support S. 204 ("A bill to preserve and protect the free choice of individual employees to form, join,") because...We The People MUST have the freedom to work without having to pay UNION DUES. Skills and Acceptance by an employer is all the requirements that am individual should have to meet to be hired by an employer.

I support S. 204 ("A bill to preserve and protect the free choice of individual employees to form, join,") because...America is the land of freedom not coercion. By what right, other than the corrupting of politicians, do the Unions have to cause a person to be FIRED if they do not want to pay their Union Dues? That is an absurd situation.

I support S. 204 ("A bill to preserve and protect the free choice of individual employees to form, join,") because...I do not believe it is Constitutional to force workers to pay union dues or be FIRED from their jobs. I believe unions: 1. Crippled America's competitive edge; 2. Forced countless companies overseas; 3. And polluted our political process. I support Senator Rand Paul's Bill!

I oppose S. 204 ("A bill to preserve and protect the free choice of individual employees to form, join,") because Rand Paul is so out of touch with the American worker and it's painful to watch him stutter about how the American worker needs "freedom" from Unionism. There is no rhyme or reason this legacy politician should be penning legislation regarding labor-management relations. American employers, and Unions, have a long history of taking advantage of each other...that is how it works. It's called negotiation. The individual is often under-empowered to acquire and maintain employment and the expression of rights in what is essentially a hostile environment towards so-called "freedom" called the workplace. Labor and management use this relationship to keep the other honest. Any bill designed to undermine the existence of that relationship should be dismissed as an attempt to curtail the rights of the individual and should be discarded. Thank you for your attention.

I oppose S. 204 ("A bill to preserve and protect the free choice of individual employees to form, join,") because those who support this bill shall never get my vote, it's as simple as that.

I oppose S. 204. Workers have the choice not to join a union, since no one is forced to join a unionized workforce. “Right-to-work” (misnomer) laws undermine the central point of unionization by creating a free-loader problem that allows workers to directly benefit from union membership without paying dues to support the actual union. But the effects of a national “right-to-work” law costs workers, union and non-union, $1,500 a year, according to the Economic Policy Institute, and its research “shows that there is no relationship between right-to-work laws and state unemployment rates, state per capita income, or state job growth.” Decreases in union membership that result from such laws have a negative impact on middle-class workers, and if benefits coverage in non-right-to-work states were lowered to the levels of states with these laws, 2 million fewer workers would receive health insurance and 3.8 million fewer workers would receive pensions nationwide. Think the Chamber of Commerce would allow any of its members to benefit from their work, but not pay dues?

I oppose S. 204 ("A bill to preserve and protect the free choice of individual employees to form, join,") because...this is a bill that limits workers' rights. Workers must have protection of their right to organize.
