Forced Unionism: Job One! Or is that Reason One

Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), the House Minority Whip, correctly charged that taxpayers are footing the bill for the General Motors, United Autoworkers Union bailout because Michigan refuses to enact a Right to Work law.  

“I think all of us can look at the model in Detroit and understand what was wrong, and structurally compare that to the other manufacturers in the right-to-work states and see what we needed to do,” he said during an appearance on CNBC.

Cantor also echoed concerns by some other Republican lawmakers that the Obama administration had favored union interests over bondholders in its bailout agreement with GM.

“There has been a downright suspension of the law,” Cantor complained about the bondholders’ treatment.
