Myths abound, from Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster to Unicorns and the Easter Bunny.
But there’s one myth that’s in a class all by itself: the whopper that Donald Trump is pro-union. “Donald Trump likes to portray himself as pro-worker but like many of his assertions, this is a flat-out lie,” LiUNA! Chicago warned as the 2020 presidential election neared.
Despite a mountain of evidence that Trump was the most anti-union president since Herbert Hoover, the myth persists. Sadly, some union members believe it.
Trump’s own words are a good place to start: “I like ‘right to work.’ I mean my position on ‘right to work’ is 100 percent,” he said on the 2016 campaign trail in South Carolina, which has been a RTW state since 1954. It’s no coincidence that RTW states are the poorest states.
So, it’s time for some myth-busting with hard, cold facts. Check this out:
