SC guv says she wears heels to kick unions

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley would rather let the people of her state go without jobs than let them get union jobs.

She actually said that. She said she didn't want any auto manufacturers moving to her state if they bring unions with them.


Here's how Wonkette put it: 
Governor Nikki Haley just wants to assure the people of South Carolina that they will never have to worry about high wages or job security, because those communist notions have no place in the Palmetto Bug State. After attending an automotive conference in Greenville, she told the Greenville News that she discourages companies from opening factories in South Carolina if they have any plans to allow unions, because she does not want any organized labor cooties getting on the state: 
“It’s not something we want to see happen … We discourage any companies that have unions from wanting to come to South Carolina because we don’t want to take the water.”
The water? Never mind. Who knows what goes on in that little head of hers. She said it's good news that unions aren't coming to her state -- good news, probably, for the billionaire sociopaths who fund her campaigns. Not so good for the people of South Carolina.

Wonkette continued:
Haley promised to keep fighting against union penetration. 
“You’ve heard me say many times I wear heels. It’s not for a fashion statement,” she said. “It’s because we’re kicking them every day, and we’ll continue to kick them.” 
It’s downright inspiring to see how far a governor will go to help bring prosperity and success to the people bloated plutocrats of her state.
