Krauthammer’s Take: Right-to-Work is Choice Between ‘High Wages, Low Employment’ and ‘More People Employed’

On tonight’s edition of Special Report, Charles Krauthammer argued that auto unions are an anachronism that simply don’t function in today’s globally competitive world the same way they did in the decades following the Second World War, when America had a leg up because it was the only industrial country that emerged from the war intact. Today, he said, the “wrenching choice” is between higher wages and fewer jobs, and lower, more competitive wages that provide “more people with the dignity of a job.”
