An Apparent Contradiction By The White House?
November 22, 2011 Leave a comment
With the apparent union-friendly atmosphere at the White House, since President Obama’s inauguration, as well as the well-documented support by unions for Democrat politicians in general, something I read today struck a chord with me. It was one of those “Things That Make You Go Hmmmm….” moments, for me.
On the PopVox site, I saw this under the “The Administration” section for H.R. 3094: Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act, (my emphasis):
The Administration opposes H.R. 3094 because it would undermine and delay workers’ ability to exercise their right to choose whether or not to be represented by a union. H.R. 3094 also attacks the freedom of individuals to choose the co-workers with whom they wish to seek representation.
In plain English!
The White House seems to be advocating for the right-to-work laws.
Am I right? I’m sure I am…
“…[W]orkers’ ability to exercise their right to choose…” doesn’t sound very pro-union, pro-closed shop, to me…
