"Right to Work (for Less)" 3.12.12
More than 1,600 union members started the work week with a rousing rally outside the Capitol's most ornate hearing room. Inside, tthe Senate Judiciary Committee met for nearly four hours to discuss adding "right to work (for less)" language to the state constitution. Outside, union members surrounded the circular hearing room, often drowning out testimony with chants such as "Just Vote No" and "Right to Work, Unfair. Right to Work, Unsafe. Right to Work, Bad Deal." Demonstrators also filled up three overflow rooms, which according to the Senate's sergeant-at-arms, was the biggest overflow crowd in his career at the Legislature.
