Monday, May 18th, the Center for Worker Freedom hosted a town hall at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

The town hall featured a panel of labor experts and lawmakers who educated attendees on the benefits of right-to-work, which allows workers the freedom to opt out of union membership and dues. The panel included:

Jim Waters, President, Bluegrass Institute

Matt Patterson, Executive Director, Center for Worker Freedom

Ron Bunch, Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce

Jason Nemes, Fultz Maddox Hovious & Dickens PLC

Jon Crosby, Field Representative of Senator Rand Paul

The town hall was covered by Bowling Green Daily News, highlighting CWF’s Matt Patterson’s presentation:

“Patterson said politics is one reason a worker might not want to contribute dues to a union.

He said unions could be described as the “bank of the Democratic Party,” because almost all the causes and candidates that labor organizations support are liberal.

‘In summation, big labor is blue, very, very blue, but Kentucky is red and getting redder,’ Patterson said.”

The town hall also received media coverage from WBKO-TV, where it was featured as a top story on the ten o’clock news. To view the coverage, click here.
