Federal law prohibits employers from forcing workers to join unions in order to get jobs.

KUNM Call In Show 1/29 8a: 

This year's legislative session is underway in Santa Fe. What will Republican leadership of the state House mean? Will long simmering issues like driver's licenses for foreign nationals, right-to-work and abortion restrictions find some traction this year?

We'd like to hear from you! Email callinshow@kunm.org, post your comments online, or call in live during the show, Thursday morning at 8 here on KUNM.
