    right to work

    I live in a right to work state.
    I googled it to see what it means, but do not understand it.
    who knows what it actually means?

    It's also a big advantage to the business too in most cases.

    Should be called more like a "Right to work for free state". The wages are normally lower in these equal opertunity states. Just a way to keep the unions at bay while paying lower wages. JMHO
    Your poor planning does not constitute an emergency on my part!!!!

    This is not a union deal. The applicable law here is the Davis-Bacon act. A law passed by republican lawmakers under a republican president. In the union town that I am from (Chi) there are many non-union doing resi and lite-commercial, there are just not a lot of non-union that have the resources to handle the huge projects such as the sears tower construction and its 2500+ WSHP's, the Naval Traing Center consolidation at Great Lakes, the 3 nuke plants...ect.

    call it no fault working

    for any reason, no reason your employer can release you, fire you, terminate your employment without cause, so each day you are working to keep your job,
    the flip side is you can leave at any time, without giving notice , wages are competive if you have the time to wait out the search to find the right job,or if not then take something and be looking for something else,
    lastly the NO COMPETE clause in contracts, or employment agreements are NOT enforceable, you can go to work for the compitition and your previous employer cant do anything about it, including taking your clients/ customers with you to the new job

    Think of it as being an unrestricted free agent. Shop for the best deal, instead of hiding under the union's skirt for protection. The best tech's will always have jobs, and always command top pay. The better you are the more you should make. Not the union strategy of seniority, screw how good you are.
    Only time will tell
