Union-Only Taxpayer Projects

Politicians beholden to Big Labor will stop at nothing to prevent workers from exercising their free choice as to whether to join a union. You can add Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to that list.

The mayor has decreed that any city project that receives funds from the Community Redevelopment Agency must agree to use union workers.

Rather than ensuring the best quality work at the lowest cost, this special-interest earmark to Big Labor prevents workers who chose not the join a union from getting work from a fund they subsidize with their taxes.
