In this flyer, the Kansas State Federation of Labor quotes the civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., in his opposition to "right to work" laws. Dr. King argues that the so-called "right to work" laws are a form of discrimination that undermine workers' right to organize and collectively bargain with their employers. Kansas voters passed a "right to work" amendment to the state constitution in 1958.
