Last year CNBC ranked Virginia as the top state in the nation for business. One big reason for that is the commonwealth’s worker freedom policies.
Collective bargaining for public employees would undermine that freedom and have consequences for every Virginia family.
Not only would it give unions much more power than citizens when negotiating with government officials, but it would hike the cost of running government. Research indicates that mandatory collective bargaining laws cost families of four $2,300-$3,000 more each year. That means every Virginia family would foot the bill for public employee unions.
Send Gov. Ralph Northam a message today, telling him to veto any bills that bolster collective bargaining and keep Virginia the top place for business.
