Obama Pick for Economic Advisor Wanted to Unionize Prisoners

September 7th, 2011, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today blasted Barack Obama’s pick for head of the Council of Economic Advisors, Alan Krueger:

“In light of his refusal to condemn the extremist remarks of Teamsters’ boss Jimmy Hoffa, promising to ‘take out’ the tea party, it is deeply disturbing that Barack Obama would nominate someone who has taken the radical position of advocating for the unionization of prisoners. Alan Krueger has even supported paying the minimum wage and overtime to prisoners. This is the man that is supposed to turn our broken economy around?”
