The failed attempt to recall Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is bad news for unions.  The main reason people tried to recall Walker was his move to limit collective bargaining rights for the state's public employees.  Steve Buckstein with Portland's Cascade Policy Institute hopes this will prompt a discussion in Oregon about becoming a "Right to Work" state.  “Whether it’s going to pass or not, I hope they will talk about it.  Our research shows if Oregon did become a "Right to Work" state in five years we'd had 50,000 more employees with no additional tax money, just be making Oregon a more attractive place to do business.”  A “Right to Work” state means mandatory union membership is forbidden to get a job.  23 states are currently "Right to Work" states, mostly in the south and west.
