McKinley County Tax Dollars Could Be Used to Push Extremist Political Agenda

On Tuesday, April 17, 2018 the New Mexico Federation of Labor appeared before McKinley County Commissioners to debunk (again) the bogus arguments being used to advance a so-called "Right-to-work" (RTW) ordinance. The ordinance's sponsor, Commissioner Lee, didn't even show up.

Call the three McKinley County Commissioners with our message:

  • RTW laws have nothing to do with providing rights or work

  • RTW laws have no positive impact on job creation or economic development

  • RTW is Dangerous, Divisive, and Unnecessary

  • RTW is being pushed by out of state billionaires to benefit the wealthy and elite alone

  • These laws have nothing to do with our right to free speech

  • Americans for Prosperity and their kin organizations have publicly stated that RTW laws are specifically about destroying unions, period.

Call all three commissioners 7am-6pm Monday - Thursday at the same number. Email them a message at [email protected] and we'll make sure commissioners get it. (McKinley County does not publish commissioner email addresses)

CLICK and Listen to Union Attorney Shane Youtz on air in McKinley County discussing proposed "Right to Work" ordinance with KGLP's Rachel Kaub.

McKinley County's proposed ordinance is only one several so-called "right-to-work" laws being pushed in New Mexico counties by billionaire funded, Americans for Prosperity - an organization notorious for its fake grassroots efforts that funnel millions in cash across the nation to spread an extremist free-market, anti-worker, anti-science, right-wing ideology.

Thanks for being active and being UNION!


Unions help build a better life for working people but the wealthy are trying to further rig the economic system in their favor. Show your support for unions.
