Gov. Scott Walker

Scott Walker dealt another blow to Big Labor this month when he signed legislation that “prevents local governments from requiring contractors to hire union labor for publicly funded construction projects.” This is a huge move forward for many reasons. And Patrick Semmens, vice president of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, basically captures it in his recent statement to the Daily Caller:

Project Labor Agreements (PLA) not only drive up the cost of projects because of union featherbedding and inefficient work rules, but they discriminate against the 86 percent of American construction workers who choose not to join a union, by effectively banning companies with nonunion workers from bidding on such contracts.
