I was going to say that the answers you get will depend on whether the person is pro-union or not.
I wouldn't join a union and my take on it is as Tim mentioned - the most important part being that I would not be forced to join a union against my will in order to continue working somewhere.
LOL, I DID try to give a more or less 'neutral' answer.
There are advantages to both setups. Closed shop might 'force you to join', but in doing so, it creates real power from which to negotiate on the behalf of everybody.
Right to work means much more individual choice, but you give up the power of a union. Even if you have a union, much more unlikely in right to work States, it is likely not very powerful.
It's a point of view. Neither is right or wrong. One vests power in the group, one in the individual. It just depends on what appeals to you the most. Or more likely, where you work or live.
