Haley's Desperation Shows in Union Attack

At a State House press conference today, Gov. Nikki Haley announced that her latest attack on labor unions would be an executive order prohibiting striking workers from collection unemployment benefits. Haley also said she would force unions to disclose their financial data.

"I don't know what state Nikki thinks she's in, or what she's running for," said SC AFL-CIO President Donna Dewitt, "but striking workers in South Carolina can't get unemployment and unions already fully disclose their financial information."

South Carolina's union membership is amongst the lowest in the nation and there are no unionized public workers who can bargain for wages.

"Haley is bashing unions in a desperate attempt to distract attention from her support of Mitt Romney," Dewitt said. "Romney believes that corporations are people and he clearly represents the interest of the nation's wealthiest 1%."

"With our state's low wages, low taxes and lax environmental regulations, I fear that the only thing Haley can do to make South Carolina more "business friendly" would be to issue an executive order to bring back slavery," Dewitt observed.

  3. South Carolina is totally anti union, which equals being one of the poorest states in the country. But they keep voting these people in office. Maybe they deserve it.

  4. Hey anonymous, you are wrong. Google "LM-2," and you will see all financial information for all unions at all levels, there on the net. By all information I mean down to the janitor's salary. 2011 reports are due March 31.
