Big Labor Sues Governor

In South Carolina, unions have run to the courthouse to sue new Governor Nikki Haley who has vowed to protect the state’s Right to Work laws. Haley has nominated Catherine Templeton to run the state’s labor agency and union lawyers are claiming her nomination somehow intimidates or coerces workers into not joining a labor union. Even though the lawsuit is farcical on its face, union bosses have never raised objections to coercion when it comes to forcing workers into labor unions.
