Huckleberries Online

Question of the Day -- 1/21/06

Issue: Idaho's union rate among the lowest: Barely 5 percent of workers represented by organized labor/Becky Kramer, Spokesman-Review

Additional Info: "Idaho is one of 21 states with a right-to-work law. In Washington, which doesn't have the law, 19 percent of the work force belongs to a union. Idaho's right-to-work law dates to 1985, when the Republican-controlled Legislature approved it over the veto of then-Democratic Gov. John Evans. State voters ratified the law the following year. AFL-CIO Idaho is making a third attempt to overturn the law this year. (It) is trying to gather enough signatures to put a right-to-work referendum on the November ballot."

Question: Do you think Idaho is ready to overturn the Right to Work law?
