Protesters standing outside the Rowan County courthouse in Kentucky we yelling at Kim Davis to "do your job."

But some conservatives have argued that Davis, a county clerk who this week made national headlines for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, was right to follow her conscious and refuse to provide the government-issued permission slips.

That's the wrong way to look at this situation, say hosts Eric Boehm and Will Swaim on this edition of the Watchdog Podcast. Private individuals and businesses should be given wide allowance to do and act as they see fit - even if that means discriminating against certain groups, which is bad business practice and abhorrent personal behavior, but that's their choice.

Government agents, on the other hand, must do their jobs fairly and provide services to everyone.  Don't like it? Then don't accept a paycheck from the government and find a different job.

What if your mailman was in favor of gun control and decided he wouldn't deliver your copy of Guns And Ammo anymore?

Then, Jason Hart sits down to talk about the big fight in Missouri between organized labor and workers who want to be free from mandatory union dues.  As we get ready for Labor Day weekend, what is the status of labor unions in America and how do they have to evolve to remain relevant in a changing economy?

All that, plus a look at the work our reporters are doing in the states and statehouse, along with our Nanny State of the Week, on this edition of the Watchdog Podcast.
