"I'm not really anti-union, I'm pro-worker," Rep. Tim Scott insists. A freshman Republican from South Carolina's first congressional district, Scott has staked out a strong position in favor of workplace democracy and union accountability.

That hasn't earned him much support from union leaders, who consider him "the anti-union legislator in America, especially in the South," he told the Heritage Foundation in our latest In the Green Room interview. But rank-and-file members are open to his views, Scott said.
