REDFORD, Mich. – President Obama weighed in on the labor battle involving “right-to-work” during a stop in Redford, MI Monday.

The President delivered his remarks to a large crowd at the “Daimler” Detroit Diesel plant. He had planned to address the looming fiscal cliff, but the topic quickly shifted to “right-to-work” legislation currently making its way through the Michigan State House.

“These so-called “right to work” laws, they don’t have to do with economics; they have everything to do with politics,” said President Obama. “What they’re really talking about is giving you the right to work for less money.”

The President also discussed taxing the wealthiest Americans as one way to solve the fiscal cliff. He also announced a $120 million dollar investment by Daimler that will result in 115 jobs at the Redford plant.

Currently, “right-to-work” legislation has been passed in both the Michigan House and Senate. A final vote is expected as early as Tuesday. Governor Snyder has said he will  sign the bills when they hit his desk.

      You,re right on !
      The Koch brothers are payin for this effort, so we can all earn as much as the Chinese. How great is that ! I guess Kochs decided to pay for something they could win, unlike the 135 M to Romney. The repugnants have found one more way to buy and sell democracy… cut the funding to the dems.

    I worked in Detroit and I am here to tell you that the percentage of black workers is ALOT higher than the ratio suggested in this photo.My question is are the people placed behind the pres strategically placed there or is it happenschance?

      Are you telling me all the old white women (and the one black women) behind Romney were'nt strategically placed? I would bet BO supporters are a closer representation in the photo. At least BO has a selection.
