The main argument against right-to-work laws is that unions improve the life of employees, but the free rider problem keeps them from improving lives as much as they could. The free rider problem arises when some people can use a service without paying for it. For example, how well-maintained would city streets be, if their maintenance was not funded with taxes?

Proponents of right-to-work laws argue that strong unions hurt the economy which leads to lower employment options. They argue that empirical data supports their argument and that it is unreasonable to force someone pay for a service they may think is harmful.
