Quote of the Day
"With the national unemployment rate still in the double digits, President Obama gathered his most trusted advisers -- the union bosses who spent over a Billion Dollars getting him and other forced unionism proponents elected last year -- to brainstorm on ways to create jobs!
Only union partisans were invited to participate and -- surprise! -- no one stated the obvious: Right to Work laws create jobs, and it doesn’t require billions of dollars of “stimulus” funds either. Studies have repeatedly shown that forced unionism states lag behind Right to Work states in terms of job creation, economic growth, and worker income.
Of course, the case for Right to Work laws rests on more than just employment numbers, as no worker should be forced to join a union or pay union dues just to keep a job. But true employee freedom doesn’t matter to the Obama Administration and their union boss allies. All they care about is forcing more employees to pay union dues to fill union coffers and fund Big Labor’s massive political machine."
