Republicans Vow to Put Right to Work for Less in State Constitution
Should any worker still think Thom Tillis and the Republican majority in our state legislature are looking out for his or her interests, this puts the lie to that notion.

U.S. Representative Sue Myrick sponsored a job fair at Central Piedmont Community College, today, but she did not attend. It’s just as well because Myrick’s voting record in Congress shows the only job that concerns her is her own.
