A Republican senator from South Carolina has used the attempted attack on a airplane bound for Detroit as an excuse to voice opposition to unions. Sen. Jim DeMint told Fox News’ Chris Wallace that unionization was a threat to airport security because collective bargaining prevents flexibility.
“We have to outthink the terrorists and when we formed the airport security system, we realized we could not use collective bargaining and unionization because of that need to be flexible. Yet, that appears to be the top priority now of the administration,” said DeMint Sunday.
