Sign The Petition: "Right to work" is wrong for Maryland

Maryland State Sen. Minority Whip Steve Hershey is reported to be launching an attack on Maryland's working families by introducing legislation to allow local jurisdictions to become "right-to-work".

Facts about "Right to work"

  • These laws drive down wages for all workers, including non-union members, women, and people of color.
  • Workers living in right-to-work states earn about $1,500 less per year than workers in states without these laws. The wage penalty is even higher for women and workers of color.
  • Workers in right-to-work states are less likely to have health insurance.
  • The rate of employer-sponsored health insurance for workers in right-to-work states is 2.6 percentage points lower than in states without these restrictions.
  • Right to work makes workplaces more dangerous. According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the rate of workplace deaths is higher in right-to-work states.

Stand up against Sen. Hershey's attack on working families and join the growing list of Marylanders who know that "right to work" is wrong for Maryland.
