Thom Tillis on Jobs

 

 


Co-sponsored National Right to Work Act

Q: Support "right to work" laws, banning unions from mandating dues for workers they represent?

Thom Tillis: Yes. Co-sponsored National Right to Work Act. As state speaker of the House, vowed to keep North Carolina "the least unionized state in the United States."

Cal Cunningham: Mixed. Endorsed by major unions. Calls for a "living wage" and defending workplace protections. In 2014 endorsed state's unique "right-to-work laws."

Opposes federal minimum wage; but let states decide

Thom Tillis [debated his primary opponents, including] tea party activist Greg Brannon, who attacked the state House speaker as softer than him on immigration, health care, education, gun rights and other issues. While mostly playing it safe, Tillis staked out a series of positions on the right that could hurt him in the general election: agreeing with the other three candidates on stage that climate change is not an established fact, opposing a federal minimum wage and suggesting that he might want to eliminate the U.S. Department of Education.

On the minimum wage, Brannon said a federal standard is unconstitutional. Tillis responded: "If there's going to be a minimum wage, it's a decision that needs to be made by the states--not the federal government."

Anti-livable income, according to AFA survey.

Tillis opposes the AFA survey question on livable income

The AFA inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'It is the government's responsibility to ensure everyone has a livable income'? Self-description: (American Family Association helps produce iVoterGuides): "Grounded in God; rooted in research"; they "thoroughly investigate candidates"; when they cannot "evaluate with confidence, they receive an 'Insufficient' rating" (& we exclude)

Let ex-cons apply freely, according to CC survey.

Tillis supports the Christian Coalition survey question on "Ban the Box"

The Christian Coalition inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Eliminate Barriers to Housing and Employment for Those Who Have Successfully Completed their Sentence?'

[Ed.: "Ban the Box" refers to a checkbox that applicants must check when applying for jobs or housing, indicating whether they have an arrest record or a felony conviction.] Self-description by Christian Coalition of America: "These guides help give voters a clear understanding of where candidates stand on important pro-family issues" for all Senate and Presidential candidates.
