The New Mexico Lesson

Quigley, Winthrop
February 1978
National Review;2/3/1978, Vol. 30 Issue 5, p157
The article focuses on the failure of New Mexico to pass a legislation on the right-to-work bill. New Mexico needs to be more serious in passing the law that ban labor contracts which require union membership as an employment condition. The legislation lost because of several reasons including the labor cultivation to its friends through contributions and volunteer service.
