so those who are against right-to-work are saying if i understand right - that since such people are wrong its ok to force them to join a union for their own good

I'm Schizophrenic and So Am I
I write tragedies, so hold on tight, first the left page, then the right.
A waste of paper I hear them say, but every dog must have its day.
Now gather round and don't be shy, read about me, myself and I.
