Maine Labor Committee Rejects Right-to-Work Bill
Maine will not become the first state in the Northeast to pass a right-to-work law. Yesterday, law makers in Augusta on the Legislature's Labor Committee voted 7-6 to recommend that the full Legislature kill the bill. Right-to-work laws guarantee that employees who work in a unionized environment not have to join the union or pay fees for the unions representation if they so choose.
