More opponents are piling on Republican candidate for governor Bruce Rauner.
After a week in which Rauner took heavy criticism for shifting views on the minimum wage, a group set up to oppose Rauner is accusing him of flip-flopping on whether Illinois should be a right-to-work state.
The Republican Fund for Progress and Jobs claims that Rauner has touted right-to-work downstate, but downplayed the issue in Chicago. The group is headed up by former Aaron Schock aide Steve Shearer… but is supported by a number of labor unions.
Right-to-work laws prohibit workers from being forced to pay union dues, and are generally viewed as an attempt to diminish the influence and effectiveness of unions.
