3-11-15 right to work-walker

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says President Barack Obama should look to his state as an example of how to improve the economy, rather than criticize his signing of a right-to-work bill into law.  Obama issued a statement Monday night after Walker signed the bill, saying right-to-work “will weaken, rather than strengthen workers.”  Obama says Walker, a likely 2016 Republican presidential candidate, should do more to help working-class Americans “by taking meaningful action to raise their wages and offer them … paid leave.”  Walker says in his statement that the law prohibiting private-sector workers from having to join a union or pay dues gives them the power to choose and provides the state with “one more tool to encourage job creators to continue investing and expanding.”
