Right-to-Work Laws Big Blow to Michigan Unions, obama and the democrats

☆astac☆~PWCM 2012/12/12 05:31:03
Michigan legislators on Tuesday approved laws that ban mandatory membership in
public and private sector unions, dealing a stunning blow to organized labor in
the home of the U.S. auto industry.

By late afternoon Republican Governor Rick Snyder tweeted: "I have signed the
freedom to work bills into law."

That makes Michigan the 24th U.S. state
with so-called right-to-work laws that prohibit unions from establishing a
"closed shop" requiring employees to join unions and contribute
dues.

    Kudos to Michigan's governor and legislature for doing this. And for cutting off another source of Democratic Party funds.

    Fantastic. It will spread to many more states. We need to stand against public employee unions as well that are bankrupting our cities and states at our expense. We can defeat them.

    The most amazing thing to all this is that the voters wanted this and voted for it.I guess sooner or later unions as we know them will be forced to work for their members not the government!

    Taking the money out of the unions means they won't be able to contribute as much to the next campaign. The billionares have bought some republicans and have them in their pocket. I wonder how many public sector employees attended the protest.

    I believe if you want to work at a union job you should be in the union, if you expect the pay and benefits. You have the freedom to work at a non-union jobs pay is different,
    and some do/ some don't offer benefits, if they do you usually have pay so much per week.

    thanks for writing back, I believe unions where good, they where always better pay,
    Healthcare was good, but through the years things have changed. But you always had a choice union or non-union jobs. Union where good because they did fight for higher wages, wages where alot lower than what people get paid now. Young people now days have no Idea how low wages where in America.

    If the unions are so good as the so called left claims why not let people join on their own? Probably because they are not so good after all...

    Good for them. Why should anybody be forced to pay a third party for the priviledge of working. Especially if those dues are spent on lobbying to support things that you don't agree with. Why should any working Repulican in Michigan be forced to be a member of a union that supports Democrats, all just so they can have a job to provide for themselves.

    The republicans ramed this through on a budget bill. A way to lower the cost of state employees but the funny thing is those bastards never offered to lower their wages. Michigan is a big labor state and this may just be the key to people stopping from voting against their best interests. I hate how the facist republicans are always saying that the communist democrats are taking their rights away. I am just sorry that the unions stopped the recall of Snyder last year. He is a sickening whim who probably never had to do a day of hard labor. Labor will win out because when you do the work for labor you are doing god's work

    Next you're going to say it's possible to be a Christian and a Democrat! Your mention of "fascist republicans" indicates your ignorance.

    Try to concentrate, Republicans (conservatives) are for less government! It's Democrats that are for bigger government (fascism is a "big" government plan)!

    That won't happen as long as the people aren't ok with it and aren't too cowardly and lazy to go against it. Also liberals are always trying to cast pearls before swine meaning they like to try and convince non-liberals to be more like them despite failing pretty much every time.
