Gov. Matt Bevin signed legislation Saturday making Kentucky the 27th right-to-work state.
That essentially means that workers at a company that has a contract with a labor union can’t be forced to pay union dues.
Republicans and the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce pushed the legislation as a way to create more jobs.
Labor leaders call it “right to work for less” legislation.
Kentucky AFL-CIO President Bill Londrigan called the legislation “shameful.”
