"In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, as 'right to work'. It provides no 'rights' and no 'works'. It's purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining... We demand this fraud be stopped."
- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 1961
