RAW Story: Fox News celebrates Michigan union busting as ‘Victory for Capitalism!’

-By David Edwards

December 7, 2012- The Fox News morning show Fox & Friends on Friday declared that a law in Michigan that weakens unions was a “Victory for Capitalism!”

On Thursday, the Republican-controlled state legislature in Michigan had quickly pushed through a new measure that would make the birthplace of the country’s labor movement a right-to-work state, crippling unions by prohibiting requirements that employees join or pay dues.

“Yesterday, the legislature of both of houses passed a law making Michigan the 24th right to work state, bans mandatory union dues,” Fox News co-host Steve Doocy reported while a graphic on the screen read, “Victory for Capitalism!”

“If you work for the UAW, you work for Chrysler, Ford, places like that — there are a lot of people who are upset,” Doocy noted.

“But that’s where it’s going,” co-host Brian Kilmeade asserted. “If you want to know what’s good about our economy, look at Indiana, look at Ohio and now look what’s happening over in Florida [with anti-union laws] and that’s what they want to do in Michigan. It’s governors making tough choices.”
