Pro 'Right to Work' Politicians in West Virginia Attack Working People on the State Senate Floor

January 26, 2016

West Virginia state Sen. Robert Karnes (R) doesn't think too highly of every day working people trying to create a better life and earn wages to sustain a family on. In fact, he called the concerned citizens who attended a recent "Right to Work" bill debate "free riders." Watch the video above.

Karnes is one of the republicans in leadership in the West Virginia Senate pushing a bill that out-of-state corporate CEOs just love. One that would lower wages, make workplaces less safe, increase poverty and lower access to adequate health care. It's clear the Republican leaders don't think too highly of West Virginia's working people.
