What Is a "Right-to-Work" State?

States operating under "right-to-work" laws allow employees to choose whether or not to join or financially support a labor union. Employees who work in the railway or airline industries are not impacted by "right-to-work" laws. Some federal employees may also be exempt. (Photo: Bill Pugliano/Getty Images)
