RIGHT-TO-WORK LAWS AND LENIN’S COMMUNIST PEDAGOGY
This chapter examines so-called Right-to-Work (RTW) laws as a nearly seventy-year push by the capitalist-state machine to not only dislodge restrictions on capital’s ability to increase the rate of exploitation of labor power as one of many measures to counter falling rates of profit, but as an attack on communism as well. This focus is markedly different from the analysis generally offered by the educational Left in the U.S., which tends to focus exclusively on the privatization of public education and the devastating restrictions on public sector unions as attacks on the public sphere and democracy. These notions suggest that neoliberal policies can be rolled back for a kinder, more egalitarian capitalism.
