I for one am glad. Maybe this will help with the economy. Unions are pissed cause they think it will break them. This more in likely will NOT happen, but at least now the workers can make their choice as to whether or not they want to pay Union dues and be Unionized. And if they opt out, they still can work and not be fired. I love this. The best thing, although I wish this happen sooner, but t least now we can go apply at a GM plant and not have to join the UAW. Granted, the odds applying and getting hired at GM, well lets say someone can won the powerball lotto easier and win before a person off the street can work at GM. But when a union worker gets $22 per hour,90% company paid healthcare,12 paid holidays per year,10 paid personal days per year,8 paid sick days per year, company pension with paid healthcare after 25/30 years employment and all this employee does for 8 hours a day is put 2 screws in a cars interior door handle or uses a machine to set in a car battery or puts 2 gallons of gas into the car its easy to see why employers are outsourcing American jobs to china and Mexico,and why so many Americans are turning against Unions.. This info is a bit dated, but it what my DH's buddy made. So maybe now this RTW thing will make the UAW and its Unionized people think twice before going on strike. With the RTW, GM can still hire people even if the other Unionized folks are on strike....
What are your thoughts ladies??

We just voted on this, and the law failed to pass. The governor is now making it a law despite being voted down. I really don't see this as saving or creating any jobs.
