BREAKING: RTW4Less tabled in NH and ME

And Maine.
The attacks on workers in Maine and New Hampshire are dying a slow death. Right-to-work-for-less bills were tabled in the Maine Senate last night and in the New Hampshire Senate today.

RTW was tabled in Maine last night. The NH Senate just voted to table RtW today.

These are good developments. But the bills aren't dead yet. They could be used as a bargaining chip and brought to vote until the end of the sessions. Maine's session ends in May, New Hampshire's on June 7.

Still, it's a good thing that these anti-worker legislatures are pulling their punches on working families. Now maybe they'll do something to create jobs (and by that we don't mean corporate giveaways).
