After recently landing Boeing’s second 787 production line, South Carolina lawmakers are intent on promoting their state, particularly its low union presence, to other businesses.
In today’s Post and Courier, S.C. lawmakers say they’ll defend the state if the federal government tries to push union rights on it.
“There is always going to be a right to organize,” Rep. Leon Stavrinakis, a Charleston Democrat, told the publication. “In South Carolina, we have set a standard that people have a right to not organize. I don’t think anything the federal government is going to do will change that.”
Here in Washington state, Crosscut published this piece about the possibility of strengthening union rights in all states, including South Carolina.
