Around 200 protestors marched outside of Galbreath Chapel at Ohio University to protest right to work laws and a National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation speaker who gave a speech at campus on Monday, September 16, 2019.
The protest came in response to Ohio University scheduling William Messenger, staff attorney at the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, as a campus speaker.
Based on the protest’s event on Facebook,having someone like Messenger speak gives a platform for a cause that “would surely be filled with lies and deception.”
Messenger is an OU alumnus and he started his lecture at 7:30 p.m., but protestors began marching around 6:30 p.m from the college gateway to the chapel that day. They held up signs against right to work and chanted “get up, get down, Athens is a union town” while demonstrating around the chapel.
Many of the protestors at the event believed that right to work laws lower wages.
Gary Crihfield, a worker who participated in the protest, claimed that he isn’t a union member. He attended the protest because he is worried that wages would be lowered if a Right to Work law was passed.
“My wages reflect the union wages,” Crihfield stated. “Everyone who works at OU would be affected by it.”
However, evidence shows that in the 27 right to work states in America, affordable cost of living, higher levels of disposable income, and higher percentages in employment growth are the norm in states with right to work laws.
So, this narrative about lower wages may be misleading when considering how unions not only price out other workers from entering the workforce, but also waste taxpayer dollars and make other goods and services more expensive.
For those who want higher levels of worker productivity and standard of living, labor freedom is a must.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
