Free choice for workers

George Leef of the Pope Center for Higher Education Policy in Raleigh, North Carolina has recently written an important update about various State “Right to Work” laws.

In 2005 Mr. Leef copyrighted a valuable reference he wrote to chronicle this issue: “Free Choice for Workers- A history of the right to work movement.”

In the Foreward to Leef’s book, Steve Forbes wrote:

This book should be read not just for its blow-by-blow accounts of the crucial battles Right to Work has fought over the years, but also because it shows that in the United States, good ideas can still prevail over bad ones. What it takes is to stick to your principles and communicate them to the people.

This, George Leef does admirably at the website below:
