IT'S GOOD POLICY...:

Scott Walker, Anti-Union Man : The signing of a "right-to-work" law gives the Wisconsin governor another victory to offer Republican primary voters. (RUSSELL BERMANMAR 9 2015, Atlantic Monthly)
 
[W]alker's ongoing battle with unions could risk becoming a defining issue for him, and not necessarily in a positive way. This was most clearly illustrated when the one-term governor, obviously not well-steeped in foreign policy, used the 2011 law as an awkward punchline to suggest his victory over Democrats and organized labor qualified him to take on ISIS as commander in chief. "If I can take on 100,000 protesters, " he said at CPAC, "I can do the same across the world." The clumsy boasting demonstrated his weakness in foreign affairs, but it also came close to exposing him as a one-issue pony. 

...but if you aren't advocating for Third Way reforms along with it, you have given away the issue of income inequality.
