Read the report below:
President Barack Obama sharply criticized efforts in Michigan to make the state the second right-to-work state in the Midwest in speech Monday in Redford, Mich.
â€œWhat we shouldnâ€™t doâ€“I just gotta say thisâ€“what we shouldnâ€™t be doing is trying to take away your rights to bargain for better wages and working conditions,â€ Obama said in the speech, which was meant to be on fiscal cliff issues. â€œWe shouldnâ€™t be doing that.â€
â€œYou know, these so-called right-to-work laws donâ€™t have to do with economics, they have to do with politics,â€ Obama continued. â€œWhat theyâ€™re really talking about is giving you the right to work for less money.â€
