Let It Rip: Right-to-work & Watson's 'bailout Detroit' comment

Posted: Updated:

By Fox 2 News Staff

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -- Right-to-work -- some call it nothing more than union busting.

"They want working families to have lower income, less security.  That's what this is about," said UAW President Bob King.

However, the governor says it's about jobs.

"We have hard working people in Michigan, and this is about giving workers choice," he told Fox 2's Tim Skubick.

Joining Huel Perkins on the panel to discuss are right-to-work supporter Brian Pannebecker, labor attorney Richard Mack, Metro Detroit AFL-CIO President Chris Michalakis and Fox 2 legal analyst and radio host Charlie Langton.

Plus, Detroit Councilwoman JoAnn Watson made national headlines after her statement this week saying basically because Detroit voted for President Obama, he should bailout the city from its financial crisis.  Charlie Langton took "Let It Rip" on the road to see what people thought about the comment.
