Thursday: Bluegrass Institute President Jim Waters speaks on “Right-to-Work Mythbusters” in Northern Kentucky
Bluegrass Institute President Jim Waters will speak Thursday @ 7 pm on “Right-to-Work Mythbusters” to a joint meeting of the Northern Kentucky Tea Party at the Florence Holiday Inn, 7905 Freedom Way, Florence, KY 41042.
The public is welcome to attend. There is no charge. There will be a question-and-answer session following President Waters’ presentation.
Waters recently in his weekly statewide Bluegrass Beacon column addressed claims by labor-union leaders that implementing a right-to-work policy would be a step backward for Kentucky’s workers and its economy:
Another indication the sky’s not falling is the fact that, as reported by the Michigan-based Mackinac Center for Public Policy, there’s been a 66-percent drop in the number of Michiganders who are jobless since their state’s unemployment rate dropped from its whopping 14.9 percent in June 2009 to 5 percent this October.
