Employees at all levels make about 10% less in right to work states, Nobody forces you to take a Union Job, it's your free choice if you want to work for less or join a Union and have a higher standard of living. Unions make up only 7% of the work force, maybe our problem is that the 93% of non-union workers don't get paid enough to grow the economy any more ?
