We have already seen how Rand Paul cares little about the plight of women anywhere in abusive relationships. We have examined how Rand Paul thinks its okay that women who work just as hard are paid less than men. Unfortunately for working men his ire is not directed just at women who work. You see, Rand Paul has a serious problem with any worker anywhere making decent wages and being able to negotiate to achieve the middle-class. Of course there is a really good reason for that. Rand Paul has been bought and paid for and it sure wasn't by the working people of Kentucky.
But we should have expected as much. In case you were not listening Rand Paul already told us we should just take less pay and keep our mouths shut about it:
And for his own part this week he has put his special interest money where his mouth is. He introduced a federal "right to work" law to try and insure that Americans everywhere get to work for less and get no benefits for doing so:
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) just introduced a federal so-called "right to work" law that would undermine labor organizing nationwide. Here's an excerpt from his press release touting the legislation:
"Every American worker deserves the right to freedom of association - and I am concerned that the 26 states that allow forced union membership and dues infringes on these workers' rights. Right to work laws ensure that all Americans are given the choice to refrain from joining or paying dues to a union as a condition for employment. Nearly 80 percent of all Americans support the principles and so I have introduced a national Right to Work Act that will require all states to give their workers the freedom to choose."
Yes, Rand Paul wants to do for America what has been done for workers in "right to work" states. Make us all give up our right to a fair wage for an honest days work:
[O]ur findings -- that "right-to-work" laws are associated with significantly lower wages and reduced chances of receiving employer-sponsored health insurance and pensions -- are based on the most rigorous statistical analysis currently possible. These findings should discourage right-to-work policy initiatives. The fact is, while RTW legislation misleadingly sounds like a positive change in this weak economy, in reality the opportunity it gives workers is only that to work for lower wages and fewer benefits. For legislators dedicated to making policy on the basis of economic fact rather than ideological passion, our findings indicate that, contrary to the rhetoric of RTW proponents, the data show that workers in "right-to-work" states have lower compensation -- both union and nonunion workers alike.
Indeed, Rand Paul wants to do for America what he would do for Kentucky. Namely he wants everyone across this great land to work for less. Not because he is on some kind of ideological crusade to get the government out of your lives, but because he is a simple whore for the Right to Work Committee and the Koch brothers and he wants to put them in control of your life and get the government out of the way from stopping them.
In that sense his crusade has made him everything he has railed so hard against. A typical Washington liar and crook.
