The state legislature is once again looking at whether the Granite State should join twenty-three others in adopting so-called “right to work legislation” which governs unionization.   But this effort narrowly failed last  year, and this year, opposition remains strong.  We’ll talk with two national experts about  the economics and politics of “right to work”.

  • Stan Greer - The newsletter Editor for the National Right to Work Committee.  He also writes and does research for the Right to Work Committee’s educational affiliate, the National Institute for Labor Relations Research.

We'll also hear from

  • Mark Guarino - Staff Writer for The Christian Science Monitor, based in Chicago. He’s been covering Right to Work fights in the Midwest
