Wtf
...is a right to work state? I do not quite understand

The reason I am asking is my step dad just got realeased from his wonderful after retirement job on day 88 of a 90 probation in a 'right to work' state, and now my parents have to file for bankrupsy.

I don't think they would be in this predicament if they hadn't covered my sisters outragious legal fees ($40,000++). Long story, some of the older folks may remember...

FAWK!!

Sometimes, life sucks.

I need a vacation. But I can't get out of work until December at the soonest...FAWK FAWK FAWK DAMN!!

BTW don't mind me, I needed a place to rant. I do want to know what a right to work state is though...

Off to the woodshop, hopefully I won't lose too many fingers

Florida is a righ to work state. In a right to work state, if the company employees vote to have a union shop, you as an individual have the right to join the union or not join the union. You can work with other employees doing the same job and they pay union dues and you do NOT have to, to keep your job. If you get into trouble with the company the union has to support you even though you don't pay dues.
In a non right to work state, if the company employees vote to have a union, all the shop employees have to belong to the union and pay dues.

Iowa is a right to work state. Basically, the employer is always right, the employee has NO rights. I've been going thru this BS with my former employer. They fired me for a "company violation", that was then deemed unlawful by Iowa Workforce (Iowa's unemployment agency), so my former employer changed their records to indicate I quit. Makes me look like the bad guy when any potential employer calls for a reference. Sad thing is, according to my attorney, there's not a dammed thing I can do about it. That's a right to work state.

By the way, if anyone is ever in the market for office furniture, don't buy from the company that starts with a "H", ends with a "N", and has a big freakin zero in the middle (or any of their subsidiaries.)

This was in Las Vegas at the Flamingo (he was management somewhere in there).

Next year I was planning on going to Vegas for my sisters wedding and I was going to stay in the Flamingo. Not now. Not ever. I will stay in my car before renting at the Flamingo.

It is so nice to know, that as a hard working individual you have no rights, but break the law and yuo have all sorts of rights. I have known it for some time, but have never had anything so close to home happen.
