Rep. Steve King and the Racist Origins of So-Called Right to Work
Posted On: Mar 16, 2017

Mar. 16, 2017 | RTW4L | Controversial Iowa Rep. Steve King is once again in hot water for espousing racist, white nationalist views, tweeting that “we can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.” He doubled down on his bigoted words over the weekend telling CNN that “I meant exactly what I said.” While this story is making headlines, there’s been scant attention paid to how King’s policy agenda reflects his white nationalist views. King is the author of the federal bill that would impose a so-called “Right to Work” scheme nationally, which would be devastating to our country’s economy and would hit workers, especially people of color, square in the pocketbook. So why would any policymaker push legislation that lowers wages?… calaborfed.org
