    Brilliant, why haven't we thought of it before. Business, government, racist organizations (affirmative action), school boards, foreign nationals, and illegal aliens all have collective rights so why shouldn't the citizens as workers have it.

    The Federal Labor Law Act requires that all state and federal employees have the right to fair pay and fair wages of equal to private business and corporations. But these states are breaking the "FLLA law" with contempt and phony excuses of budget.

    Collective bargaining is implied in the constitution as collective will of the people called a democracy.

    People are the economy and wages are the growth in the economy and government is trying to strip us of our democratic right of collective bargaining. Is the law stripping american so collective bargains going to make it the law of the land and eliminate our right to vote in elections as well? That too is collective bargaining so any law prohibiting collective choice also strips the public of the right to vote.

    State with Right to Work laws should be called illegal and unconstitutional, including Utah.
