 Obama jumps head-first into fight over Michigan labor laws 

By Amie Parnes

President Obama on Monday weighed into the fight over changing Michigan into a right-to-work state, saying the move was all about politics and about your “rights to bargain for better wages.”
During a visit to a Daimler Detroit Diesel plant in Michigan, Obama signaled the White House will be more active in this labor fight than it was during a similar fight in Wisconsin in 2011. He described the proposed changes in Michigan as being part of a “race to the bottom” that won’t help the economy.
“What we shouldn’t be doing is trying to take away your rights to bargain for better wages,” Obama told a small crowd at the plant. “We don’t want a race to the bottom. We want a race to the top.”
Obama said the laws “don’t have to do with economics. They have everything to do with politics."
Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, who greeted Obama at the airport in Detroit on Monday, is expected to sign legislation on Tuesday to make Michigan the 24th right-to-work state. The move has angered Union workers who protested the legislation in Lansing.

We must close union offices, confiscate their money and put their leaders in prison. We must reduce workers salaries and take away their right to strike." !
