Obama is still campaigning because he doesn’t have anything else to worry about, like…the fiscal cliff. Obama continues to lie about bargaining rights to incite his fellow union goons. In reality, the right-to-work law allows people to not be forced to join unions as a condition of employment. The liberal media won’t point out Obama’s lies but I will.
(CNSNews.com) – Speaking at the Daimler Detroit Diesel Plant in Redford, Mich., on Monday, President Barack Obama lashed out at the Michigan legislature for passing a right-to-work law and declared that Americans only needed to look at Michigan if they wanted to see how unions helped build the middle class.
“These so called right to work laws, they don’t have to do with economics,” Obama said. “They have everything to do with politics.
“What they’re really talking about is giving you the right to work for less money,” said Obama. “You only have to look to Michigan where workers were instrumental in reviving the auto industry to see how unions have helped build not just a stronger middle class but a stronger America.”
The American taxpayer revived the auto industry with the bailout. Thanks to unions, states like Michigan are hell-holes. See Detroit for example.
Unemployment in Michigan was 9.1 percent in October.
The state legislature passed the bill last week that would make union dues and membership voluntary for private sector unions and most public sector unions. Police and firefighters are the exception.
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has said he would sign the bill to make Michigan the nation’s 24th right-to-work state.
Obama scoffed at the legislation.
“We should do everything we can to encourage companies like Daimler to keep investing in American workers,” Obama said Monday. “And by the way, what we shouldn’t do, I just got to say this, what we shouldn’t be doing is try to take away your rights to bargain for better wages and working conditions.”
Nothing in the law stops collective bargaining but Obama is a well documented liar and a known law-flunky. See Arizona SB1070 for example of how wrong Obama is about his law knowledge or his stupidity on Citizen’s United.
