WTF is going on in New Hampshire? This is a series of worker-hate laws that the good people of New Hampshire are working on; A new right-to-work for less bill and a second right-to-work bill that is a backup in case the first one fails. A bill that once repealed collective bargaining rights for teachers, firefighters and other public workers; was stripped and amended in committee to allow employers to lead desertification of public unions. A bill that puts a tax on tea and stamps without representation. A bill that strips the requirement for a union to be the exclusive representative of a bargaining unit out of the collective bargaining law. A bill that gives the Legislature veto power over state and municipal employee contracts. A bill that prohibits automatic payroll deduction of union dues, but was stripped and amended to split increases in health insurance 50-50 between employers and employees if a contract expires. Wow, regression is an understatement. Is it too late to give New Hampshire back to Great Brit? Can anyone point this state out on a map?
