So this happened just now:
Gov. Mitch Daniels signed “right to work” bill this afternoon without ceremony making Indiana the 23rd state in the nation with the law,
Daniels and other Republican supporters characterized the measure as needed for Indiana to attract jobs.
This should make the Super Bowl, pitting two groups of very highly-paid union members against each other, interesting. The NFL Player’s Association had already made the following statement three weeks ago:
“Right-to-work” is a political ploy designed to destroy basic workers’ rights. It’s not about jobs or rights, and it’s the wrong priority for Indiana.
This Super Bowl should be about celebrating the best of what Indianapolis has to offer, not about legislation that hurts the people of Indiana.
Only because I don’t care about either team this year, I’d really like to see the players boycott the game. Then again, having unions blamed for the cancellation of The Rematch would probably be bad optics. Never mind.
