Indiana became the latest state to create a law weakening unions after Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) signed a “right to work” law in what Republican lawmakers say will bring jobs to the state.

“This law won’t be a magic answer, but we’ll be far better off with it,” Daniels told the Indianapolis Star. “I respect those who have objected, but they have alarmed themselves unnecessarily. No one’s wages will go down, no one’s benefits will be reduced and the right to organize and bargain is untouched and intact.”

However, people in and out of the state of Indiana disagree with Daniels. Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn (D) says the law puts Indiana on the “wrong track.” He told WJBC Radio in Illinois that the new law should really be called “the right to work for less” bill.

“That’s what it’s all about, so trying to drive things down to the bottom, I think Indiana is on the wrong track,” Quinn said. “They’re going to find that the incomes of their people will not rise to where they should be because they’re not believing in the power of people organizing for their common good.”

Meanwhile, Indiana workers used Super Bowl week as a platform to show the world their displeasure with the bill. Union workers have been protesting in downtown Indianapolis all week including a Feb. 1 march to Lukas Oil Stadium and the Super Bowl village.

The protesters have even garnered the support of the NFL Players Association, including NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith who participated in a protest.

“We share all the same issues that the American people share,” Smith told The Nation. “We want decent wages. We want a fair pension. We want to be taken care of when we get hurt. We want a decent and safe working environment. So when you look at proposed legislation in a place like Indiana that wants to call it something like ‘Right to Work,’ I mean, let’s just put the hammer on the nail. It’s untrue.”

Six NFL players sent letters to Indiana lawmakers urging them to vote against the bill according to the Associated Press.
