Senate Returns to Work, Right-to-Work That Is
The state Senate is expected to vote on Right-to-Work legislation next week.
The measure passed a Senate Committee earlier today.
There’s a déjà vu quality to this bill.
The legislation is the same as last year – a move to exempt workers from paying fees for collective bargaining.
The arguments are the same – supporters say the bill will bring business to the Granite State.
Opponents say it will end up costing New Hampshire jobs, and drive wages down.
Even the politics are similar.
The Senate is interested, but not invested, especially in an election year.
House leadership is pushing hard to pass the measure, but seemingly lacks the votes to override a certain gubernatorial veto.
