outside the room, one was struck by the powerful emotion of the situation. Here
is man who professes an undying love of Indiana and says a right-to-work
law will be of great benefit. Outside, scores of Hoosiers disagreed. RTW
boosters did not feel compelled to pick up their placards for a counter
demonstration. Maybe that's not how the economic development community rolls.
Still, to disregard the depth of emotion running contrary to this initiative
threatens to further erode faith that government truly is of and for the
people. Maybe RTW is right for Indiana, but let's not force feed
the issue when so many Hoosier workers are crying foul. Put it on the ballot
— let us decide as a state what policy on this contentious issue we feel
is truly in our best interest.
