Indiana's current battle over Right to Work legislation is gaining national attention, but it's the local attention that is most notable. Two of the major newspapers local to the flagship station of the Peter Heck Radio Show have certainly done little to hide their opposition to the idea of allowing workers the freedom to choose whether they want to pay union dues or not.
A group that favors the idea of Right to Work is the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, who believes that such a move would make Indiana much more attractive to businesses, thus bringing more jobs to the state. On Wednesday's radio show, Peter Heck talked with Kevin Brinegar, the President and CEO of Indiana's Chamber of Commerce.
The two talked about the benefits of Right to Work, the myths that are perpetuated by union leadership against it (for instance, no one ever seems to point out that Indiana teachers are already "right to work" and yet their union remains the most powerful in the state), and what communities in central Indiana can expect if the legislation passes.
