Indian American Technology activist #Derek Khanna working on 'Right to Work' legislation

'With Right to Work legislation, employees cannot be forced to join a union. If a worker chooses to keep their money, they can. For unions, they must prove their worth to their members,' said Derek Khanna in his op-ed article in The Daily Caller news paper

On January 27, 2013, Khanna kicked off a national campaign US to legalize cellphone unlocking, which has been called by some the "most important change in mobile policy in nine years." A ruling by the Librarian of Congress made cellphone unlocking a federal crime under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Khanna's legal analysis demonstrated how this act could result in jail time of up to five years and $500,000 fine for unlocking one's own device. Khanna teamed up with entrepreneur Sina Khanifar on a White House We The People petition.
