Right-to-work laws typically occur at the state level and refer to labor-management agreements preventing businesses from requiring workers to join a union as an employment condition. The laws do not guarantee employment for any individual, but rather focus on eliminating a requirement for workers to pay union fees or fees to the entities who may have negotiated payment standards with the business. These laws exist in 26 states including many Midwestern states like Wisconsin and Indiana. Many of these laws guarantee the right to join a union, but are clear to not compel individuals into union membership against their will.
