State Rep. Gilda Cobb-Hunter tells a Dutch Fork High class that the one issue that bothers her the most is the union-bashing that’s going in South Carolina. Cobb-Hunter says it bothers her because it pits workers against one another, less than 5 percent of S.C. workers are unionized and state leaders are spending too much time on unions when there are more pressing issues. We’re “killing a gnat with a sledgehammer,” she says of anti-union legislation.
