Republican Kentucky Sen. and presidential candidate Rand Paul notes Tuesday that in order for his state to pass right-to-work, Democrats must break with party lines.
Kentucky is a hotbed for labor policy fights. The battle took a major turn in favor of right-to-work supporters because newly elected Republican Gov. Matt Bevin adamantly supports the policy. Paul, however, argues that for his state to pass it, Democrats are needed.
“Some of it depends on whether we can get a few Democrats to switch parties,” Paul tells The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We need to get a few more supporters in the state legislature.”
The policy outlaws mandatory union dues or fees as a condition of employment.
