Latest Right-to-Work Public Hearing 6pm 3-2-15


THE REPUBLICAN BACKED FAST TRACKED RIGHT TO WORK BILL IS NOW MAKING ITS WAY THROUGH THE STATE ASSEMBLY. A MARATHON PUBLIC HEARING IS UNDERWAY TODAY AT THE CAPITOL. THAT’S WHERE WE FIND NBC 15’S KATE PABICH. KATE WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE BILL THAT WOULD ALLOW UNION WORKERS TO CHOSE IF THEY WANT TO PAY UNION DUES OR NOT? JOHN AND LEIGH, THE TESTIMONY TODAY HAS BEEN MUCH OF WHAT WE HEARD LAST WEEK AT THE SENATES PUBLIC HEARING—BUT THE FEEL AT THE CAPITOL IS MUCH DIFFERENT. VERY FEW PROTESTERS— AND FEW OUTBURSTS DURING THE PUBLIC HEARING. “IF THIS BILL IS AS PROMISING FOR THE STATE AS YOU SAY, THESE SEATS SHOULD BE ALL FULL FOR PEOPLE SPEAKING IN FAVOR OF IT.” AND SOON, THERE WAS A SMALL BUSINESS OWNER ALL FOR RIGHT TO WORK “BUT THEY DELIBERATELY IGNORE THE FACT THAT RIGHT TO WORK WILL BE GOOD FOR MY BUSINESS, THE BANKRUPTCY BUSINESS.” THIS BANKRUPTCY LAWYER FACETIOUSLY TESTIFIED BEFORE THE ASSEMBLY LABOR COMMITTEE. “WHEN GOVERNOR WALKER SIGNS THIS LEGISLATION, WE’LL BE ON OUR WAY TO BECOMING A TOP 10 STATE FOR BANKRUPTCIES, AND I GET EXCITED JUST SAYING THAT” BUT AGAIN, CONFLICTING TESTIMONY AS OTHER EXPERTS TESTIFY THAT THIS BILL REPRESENTS FREEDOM…AND THAT OTHER STATES SHOW A BOOST IN THE WORKFORCE. “IF YOU DONT LIKE YOUR UNION CONTRACT, IF YOU THINK THEY DID A BAD JOB, IF YOU THINK THEYRE NOT REPRESENTING YOUR INTERESTS, YOURE STILL STUCK WITH THEIR REPRESENTATION.” ” LOOK AT INDIANA AS AN EXAMPLE, INDIANA BECAME A RIGHT TO WORK STATE IN 2012. RIGHT NOW THEY HAVE 126,000 MORE JOBS, THAN THEY DID BEFORE THEY BECAME RIGHT TO WORK.” DEMOCRATIC REPRESENTATIVE CHRIS SINICKI CALLING OUT WMC FOR A RECENT POLITIFACT THAT RATED THEM FALSE WHEN TALKING ABOUT MONEY FOR WORKERS TRAINING COMING FROM THE EMPLOYER NOT THE UNION DUES- “KURT BAUER, IT’S A QUOTE FROM HIM. 95% OF THE MONEY USED FOR TRAINING CENTERS COMES FROM EMPLOYERS. THAT GOT A MOSTLY FALSE, DO YOU WANT TO RECANT WHAT YOU’RE SAYING? I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT, IF YOU GO TO THE VERY END OF THAT POLITIFACT, THAT’S WHY I WANTED TO BRING IT UP TO QUOTE IT PROPERLY HERE, WHAT IS SAYS IS THAT MAY BE TRUE IN A TECHNICAL SENSE IT DOES, YOU GOT A MOSTLY FALSE ON THIS, RIGHT HERE IN WRITING.” THIS BILL WILL LIKELY PASS OUT OF COMMITTEE BEFORE THE ASSEMBLY’S FLOOR PERIOD THURSDAY– AND WITH THE REPUBLICAN MAJORITY THERE, THIS BILL COULD BE ON GOVERNOR WALKERS DESK BY FRIDAY. REPORTING LIVE AT THE CAPITOL, KATE PABICH NBC 15 NEWS.
