Union members occupy state house to oppose right to work state bill
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.--Union workers from Northwest Indiana and across the state packed the state house Thursday.
They want to tell lawmakers they oppose a controversial bill that could turn Indiana into a right to work state. Thursday about 500 people stood outside the senate chamber to support those presenting their case to the general assembly. It's a hot issue and a part of the reason behind the state's longest ever legislative walkout earlier this year.
If Indiana makes the change it would become the nation's 23rd right to work state.
