GOP on the Middle-Class

Governor Chris Christie and Republicans at the top of the food chain are out of touch with reality. Today on national television they tried to sell us on the notion that a few thousand minimum wage jobs at Staples and Sports Authority are representitive of middle-class America! We need to take a good look at that statement. I am in no way putting down people who work at these places and indeed it's better than unemployment.
Working Americans need to also take a good look at Right-to-Work Laws and the people who push for them. When I first heard the term right-to-work I thought to myself, "Hell Yes!" Everybody has the right to work! Thats not what these laws are about,un-fortunatly.
Many people think the right-to-work laws protect their jobs. Nothing could be further from the truth. Right-to-Work Laws protect the employer and give the employer the right treminate you at anytime for any reason or no reason at all. To put it simply. What the worker gets is the right to work for less pay and little or no job security at all.
