Re: NLRB one more reason voters in Muruca will crack down on UNION JOE
"Right to work" in the US is a legal phrase that actually means "right to fire you"
For example, Florida is a "right to work" state as well, meaning they can pretty much fire you at a whim, except for narrowly protected things like age/race/gender discrimination.
I think your mixing up two terms. Your definition applies to "at will employment", which means that there are fewer restrictions on why an employment contract can be terminated. "Right to work" isn't the same, and generally means that a company cannot require its employees to be members of or financially contribute to a union, as opposed to states where employees can choose not to participate in union activities but are still required to pay for union representation if they are employed at a unionized location. You can have one of these without the other, so it's useful to know where one ends and another begins.
