An unlikely result is still in play in the state of Maine, as the legislature there continues to entertain a proposal to make Maine the 29th state in the union with a right-to-work law on its books. Longshot or not, right to work legislation was the subject of a raucous public hearing before the Labor, Commerce, Research and Economic Development Committee this week in Augusta. Labor was out in force to object to the legislation, while the proposal (LD 65, An Act To Ensure the Right To Work without Payment of Dues or Fees to a Labor Union as a Condition of Employment) also had plenty of support before the joint committee. Right to work legislation has been endorsed by Maine Governor Paul LePage, who calls it crucial to attract more business to the state. As one of the 28 that already is a “right-to-work” state, North Carolina is not resting on its laurels on the subject. The Tar Heel State is considering a constitutional amendment that would codify “right to work” in the state constitution. The proposal is currently being deliberated by the state senate, having already been passed by the House of Representatives. It will ultimately be decided by the voters.
