Rauner, a private equity manager who is personally contributing large sums of money to his campaign,  has frequently spoken in support of “Right to Work” labor policies, and has pointed to Wisconsin governor, Scott Walker, as a role model.  He is strongly against public sector unions, and strives to erode labor rights in Illinois.
