Speaking at a Daimler Detroit Diesel plant on Monday, President Obama criticized the push by Michigan Governor Rick Snyder and the Republican legislature to enact "right-to-work" laws. Obama told the cheering crowd, "What they're really talking about is giving you the right to work for less money." Watch:
OBAMA: We should do everything we can to keep creating good middle-class jobs that help folks rebuild security for their families... What we shouldn't be doing is trying to take away your rights to bargain for better wages and working conditions. These so-called right to work laws, they don't have to do with economics, they have everything to do with politics. What they're really talking about is giving you the right to work for less money... We don't want a race to the bottom. We want a race to the top. America's not going to compete based on low skill, low wage, no workers' rights.
