    I agree that in Right-to-Work states there are too many people willing to work at well-paying union jobs without paying union dues – In most organizations & groups there are too many “let Joe do it” types.

Pass a test or obtain a certification to validate competency- YES, BUT – to me the “right to peaceably assemble” implies a “right not to assemble”. Having the right to do, or not do, something doesn’t make it the right thing to do.
