Obama jumps headfirst into fight over Michigan 'right-to-work' law

The Hill reports on Obama's trip to Michigan:
“What we shouldn’t be doing is trying to take away your rights to bargain for better wages,” Obama told a small crowd at the plant. “We don’t want a race to the bottom. We want a race to the top.”
Union members are less than 7% of the private sector workforce and Obama wants to restrain trade in the labor market.
