Shouldn't it be up to the employer to decide what the terms of employment should be? Wouldn't THAT be true freedom?

Right-to-work is government intrusion. It's a bill that restricts certain contracts.

If they don't like belonging to a union they're free to seek employment where they like the conditions of employment, no one is going to force anyone to take a job they don't like.
