For the record, Taft-Hartley, the 1947 federal law which allowed "right to work" for less was passed by a Republican Congress over the veto of a Democratic president, Harry Truman.
Excellent column. Thanks!
While you're making changes to your guide, how about reconsidering your endorsement of a Labor Commissioner who cares so little for North Carolina workers she doesn't even think they should be guaranteed to earn at least a minimum wage? http://bit.ly/PcrBfo
I CANNOT believe that you endorsed Cherie Berry for Labor Commissioner. You said you had to hold your nose - well you didn't have to endorse in her race at all! You chose not to endorse in the race for Insurance Commissioner despite Wayne Goodwin's contested race and clear track record of standing up for North Carolina consumers.
But to me this is the most salient fact you failed to consider: Cherie Berry is so lame as Labor Commissioner that she doesn't even believe North Carolina's wage slaves should be guaranteed at least a minimum wage! That's the startling admission she volunteered to a right-wing, anti-worker interest group this year: http://bit.ly/PcrBfo.
I mean, really? Seriously? Your pick for **Labor Commissioner** is someone who **wants to repeal the minimum wage**?
And you blithely overlooking Cheri Berry's equally contemptible refusal to go on the record against child labor or her refusal to meet with farm labor advocates brings great shame on this publication.
Nice preview, Bob! These same folks came together a couple of weeks ago on Bicentennial Mall to welcome lawmakers back to town in a big, new way. I'm sorry you missed that one!
Good! Tracey Cline was crazy.
