Give me a break! I am ashamed that this is our neighbor to the east!
But here’s the proposal that’s ringing alarm bells at Democratic headquarters and labor union halls across the Lone Star State: Nelson offered legislation to make sure no kid joins a labor union without the consent of their parents.

"This bill protects parental rights by requiring consent before a minor may join a union, and it protects minors from entering into a contract that they may not fully understand."

Makes sense to Nelson, who said her motivation was a conversation with William Schlabach, a constituent whose daughter joined a labor union without fully understanding the agreement she had signed.

During a Senate committee hearing on SB 75, Schlabach said his daughter was told she had to sign a union form if she was going to get a summer job at the grocery store chain Kroger.
