See how much so-called "right-to-work" is going to cost your family

This is real. Use our online Lost Wage Calculator to see how much you'd lose if the Supreme Court brings Wisconsin-style empty promises to our state.

Because when they did this in Wisconsin, they promised it would raise pay. Guess what? They lied.

Right-to-work (RTW) is expected to become law nationwide in 2018 due to a pending Supreme Court ruling in JANUS v. AFSCME.

RTW brought serious impacts to other states, like Wisconsin. When RTW laws went into effect in Wisconsin, the power of working people to fight for fair wages and working conditions was weakened.

Our ability to collectively stand for retirement security and affordable healthcare negatively impacted.

As a result, union workers in Wisconsin lost wages, affordable health insurance and many lost their jobs. Their power to negotiate and enforce contracts was lost.

 “They didn’t get raises when this happened in Wisconsin. State employees got pay cuts and, in some cases, lost their jobs. After Republican Gov. Scott Walker and the Republican Legislature imposed ‘right-to-work’ laws, they cut state employment by increasing caseloads and cut wages by the equivalent of 8-10 percent in take-home pay by increasing employee contributions to health care and pension benefits.” Source: The Stand (10/19/17)
