This is great news for our State.

Thank you for all your efforts !!

Forced unionization should not be allowed. Workers will still be allowed to form or join a union, but forcing someone to join is un-American.

Michigan has suffered great job losses. What's the point of having a strong union, if there are no companies willing to stay or locate here?

congradulations

you now have the right to longer hours,no overtime pay
less time off for the holidays
none or little to no healthcare.less pay
and no representation,you are at the whims of the
employer
and no time off if you get sick
i am not an advocate for unions,but even with all their
flaws,they helped get a better wage so one could actually
afford to buy what they helped build,and provide a life
for your families

In a free market isn't that

In a free market isn't that what makes an employer better than the next one? Not disagreeing just my first thought.

in a true free market yes

i really do not see a free market platform
working here,what with another picking winners
and losers
but yes,in a truly free market where there
is true competition with jobs,that is how it is
supposed to work
just my thoughts

Right to work does not outlaw unions

You are spreading disinformation. Right to work is about not being able to have a closed shop, where new workers are FORCED to join the union before they are allowed to work. If you want to join and pay the dues that is fine, but being able to force someone to do so by law is truely immoral.

dis info??

where did i state it outlaws unions?
but now the laws are on the books for right to work?
now who has been forced? should this even be a law
everyone has the right to work
this legislation is one step towards getting rid of ALL
higher paying jobs,thereby reducing the amount of pay
so the employers get the biggest share,and the workers get the shaft
should this have been put to the people to vote on?
seems to me it should have,you know seeing it affects them
i worked for GM,then delphi after it spun off,the wages went down
for all delphi employees,now they have sold out and another
owns it,them workers can call in sick,and even with a dr's note
get a point for missing work
they also receive half the pay,and do twice as much of the work as they phased out half of the employees, and less healthcare,and this is with a union
do you honestly think this bill will make it better?

It depends on just how the law is written

but generally right to work is very Libertarian. At its core it codifies the right to free association. The Idea that a business owner is not allowed to hire good employees unless those employees agree to pay the union "protection racket" to ensure their ability to work is grossly anti-individual. Congragulations Michigan for standing up for individual Liberty, and plian ol' fashioned good sense.

Right to Work is not

Right to Work is not something libertarians should be celebrating.
