In one of the more ironic, and funny, lamentations coming from Democrats protesting Michigan’s newly enacted Right to Work legislation, Union President Jimmy Hoffa offered this gem:
What they’re doing is basically betraying democracy,” he told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin. “If there’s any question here, let’s put it on the ballot and let the people of Michigan decide what’s good for Michigan.”
Proponents of the legislation say it gives workers more freedom, while opponents say a less robust union presence will negatively affect workers’ rights. Hoffa also argued that those who don’t pay union dues will be considered “free riders,” as they’re getting the same benefits from union representation without the cost.
Not sure if Hoffa was educated within the stellar Detroit educational system, if so, it’s highly likely he doesn’t understand the concept of extrapolation. Example: People who don’t pay taxes = “free riders” who get the same (uh, more) benefits from government at less cost than those who suffer the burden on their behalf.
Guess Hoffa thinks the concept of “those damn free riders” only matters when it’s HIS income taking a hit.
