Breaking: Obama Opposes Michigan 'Right to Work' for Less Proposal

White House spokesperson Matt Lehrich said Thursday the president opposes "right to work" for less laws like legislation proposed in Michigan.

President Obama has long opposed so-called "right to work" laws and he continues to oppose them now. The president believes our economy is stronger when workers get good wages and good benefits, and he opposes attempts to roll back their rights. Michigan--and its workers' role in the revival of the U.S. automobile industry--is a prime example of how unions have helped build a strong middle class and a strong American economy.
