MacIver News Minute: Some Employers Continue Waltzing Right Past Right-to-Work Law

April 25, 2019

Why have a law if you don’t enforce it? Such is the case with Wisconsin’s right-to-work law. As MacIver News Service first reported, some union shops have posted ads requiring applicants to be in a union to get the job. That’s illegal under Wisconsin law, which states no employer may require union membership as a condition of obtaining or continuing employment. While the state agency in charge of enforcing right-to-work punts to the federal government, big labor gets to discriminate against non-union applicants – with impunity.
